When that time comes that you need to touch up the sharp edge of your Wusthof knife the 10" steel is a good option. The Wusthof 10" inch steel can realign your knife edge quickly and easily. Honing steels are often confused as sharpeners. Your honing steel will realaign your knife edge but will not put a new edge on it. In trying to explain what a honing steel does try to imaging your sharpening steel and your toothbrush. It is a maintaince tool that you use everyday. In the case of your knife this would be maintaining the knifes edge. Now eventually you would need to see your dentist. That would be a sharpener. This would be a more detailed and agressive action and they would actually remove metal from the edge of the knife. Much like a dentist would do to your teeth. Now to maintain healthy teeth you brush everyday. To maintain a sharp knife you should steel your knife everyday. And remember only go to the Dentist(sharpener) once or twice a year.. Wüsthof - 10" Knife Sharpening Steel with Loop
A sharpening steel is an indispensable tool for keeping your knife collection in its best cutting shape. This 10-inch Wüsthof model is made for the job, with a sturdy non-slip handle and a magnetic steel that attracts metal fibers while you sharpen. The tool's square handle provides a good grip and allows easy revolution of the steel to spread the work around its surface. Fitted with a loop for hanging storage, the steel also stashes tidily in most knife blocks. --Emily Bedard

As you probably know, you should use this every time you use your knife to keep the knives sharp. Never did discipline myself to do that until now and it has really been great! My new knife still feels razor sharp.
Talked to a guy in a cutlery shop and he was under the impression that, for German steel, get a German steel.. make sure it's about 2" longer than your longest knife. He also suggested to get a mid-range steel. Don't go broke, but don't go cheap. I felt like this was perfect.
The knives' blades are sharpened with several quick strokes across their lengths on both sides of the blades. It's the small grooves that are scored into the steel that sharpen the knives. Unless you keep an electric knife sharpener on your kitchen counter, this is the only fast way I know of to handily sharpen the blades before using them.
The quality of Wusthof is important to me. If it is to you, too, this sharpening steel tool is a good choice.
On the recommendation of a friend who is a professional chef, who said that steel is the best for sharpening, I bought this.
I'm not really understanding the discussion about how cheaply made this is. I use it on carbon steel knives bought at a Chinese grocery. The handle is well-attached and seems sturdy. The sharpener works well enough that my big knives slice like they're new.
I would recommend this--it works well.
