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

The other reason I bought it is because the rod is, supposedly, magnetized. The only part that is remotely magnetic, is the very tip, which is useless.
At this point, all you're paying for is the brand name, since there's no longer anything separating them from all the other chinese made rods that are $10 less.
IMO, if a seller changes where the product is made, they should have to make a new amazon page for it. Many of the reviews and comments (saying it's made in Germany) are from before they switched to china. This is very misleading to recent customers.
Note to some. This is the same thing as a honing steel. They do the same thing. Even though this is called a sharpening steel, it isn't meant for a dull knife. It's meant for daily or near daily conditioning of the knife edge. Daily means when it's used of course, not pulling your knives out of the drawers and conditioning each one. If you do light cutting, you don't need to use each time, but if you are cutting through dense things and coming down hard on a cutting board then you need to use it each time. The edge gets tiny damage that honing will take care of.
Even using this the way you should, you will have to sharpen your knives every so often, and the time duration depends on your usage so it's impossible to when. Basically you remember how well the knife cut when you first got it. When honing doesn't get you back to that, then you either sharpen it with something made specifically for that or you take you knifes to a person who has a good reputation who understands blade angles and will ensure they sharpen your knives at the correct angles.
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.
After taking my set to be sharpened the last time, I asked the owner of the shop what he would suggest for maintenance of the newly honed edges.
This sharpening steel is what he suggested.
A few quick swipes before every several uses and my edges are restored. Often as I am making a salad, I don't notice the sharpness until I cut into a tomato. When my knife doesn't effortlessly slide through, I just wash it off, give it several swipes, wash it off again, then resume use - - - edge is restored.
This steel is nicely weighted and balanced, has a comfortable non slip handle that fits well in both my and my husbands hands, and does a great job with little effort.
