  • Dimensions: 4.5 IN x 20.2 IN x 14.2 IN

Although steels often are touted as sharpening tools, few actually sharpen knife blades, but they do perform the vital task of realigning, or resetting, edges, which bend when contacting a cutting surface or other hard object. Because this tool’s chrome/vanadium stainless-steel rod contains hundreds of thousands of diamond particles, it’s hard enough to somewhat sharpen a blade. Using this steel won’t replace a professional sharpening job, which proceeds from coarse grinding to ever-finer grinding at tightly controlled angles. However, it will lengthen intervals between sharpenings better than a steel without diamonds because it accomplishes the final task of a professional sharpening, which is polishing the edge to a fine point.

Exceptionally well made, this tool’s rod has a solid core and has been plated with hard chrome for additional resistance to abrasion and to extend its life. Because the rod is a 3/4-inch-wide oval, it exposes more surface and works quicker than a cylindrical rod. Like Global’s signature knife handles, the steel’s handle is molded for comfort and dimpled for a safe grip. The rule is that a steel should be at least as long as the knife blade being drawn across it, and this steel’s 10-inch rod is long enough for most household knives. –Fred Brack
