Huh?

There are dozens of steels used by knife makers.

What are you asking?

I think he is talking about a honing steel (though I may be mistaken), which is a bit of a misnomer since they don't hone, they just realign the edge.

I pulled this off of Wusthoff's site.

quote:
WÜSTHOF honing steels are made from hard chromium plated steel with a hardness of 65 Rockwell. All honing steels are produced from an alloy tool steel (material no. 2210) with 1.15%C (carbon) content, .6% chromium and .03% vanadium.

Oh, that makes sense. That never occurred to me.

Fla. Jim are you speaking of the Buck model 137 sharping steel? It was made in the late 70's - early 80's, now discontinued. Some times found on ebay or at knife shows. It was flat with a fine and coarse side and had a clamp handle to hold it. Came in a leather sheath.

As I am somewhat dyslectic and usually speak my way all around a idea! Yes I was referring to the honing steel's like this one.

Ceramic ones are better and they don't wear out.
