Fine Sharpening Steel 5 "Well made and works as intended" Mr Dylak 20 September 2019 I have (had) a lot of knives that have become blunt over time and have tried various sharpening devices. These haven't worked too well. The steel however sharpens exceptionally well. Even completely blunt knives become sharp in a few strokes and less than a minute. There is a technique to learn but a number of YouTube videos show you how to do it, and the instructions enclosed with the item are helpful. The steel appears to be very well made (in Sheffield - where else?) and looks like it will last a lifetime. I am very pleased with this purchase and would recommend it to others.
