It is the exact steel i used one for 40 yrs. I ordered it and am giving to my daughter and son in law for christmas.
Replacement gift for my dad’s 40 year old steel. Will last him another 40 years.
As a former retail meat cutter, this is the real deal. High quality, full size and an excellent piece of equipment. This should last anyone a lifetime.
Passed around the #3 culinary facility in the country, cornell dining, this steel goes from knife to knife and produces a lasting edge that will glide through a 1mm tomato slice. And when you consider that it’s not handling any basic stainless steel. Vg-10, vg-max damascus, vg12 high carbon/blue steel damascus. This steel is a workehorse, and will serve your home or career proficiently.

I have had one of these for years and it has been warn out for a long time. This one seems to be even better than the first one that i had.
I’m giving this dexter-russell butchers steel a five star rating because it deserves it. I worked as teenager in my dads grocery store meat market in the 1950’s. In the fall, farmers slaughtered their hogs, brought them to our walk-in cooler to be butchered and packaged. We did a lot of meat cutting so you had to have good knives, a good stone and most of all you had to have a real good steel. I have been looking for a good steel for years and now i’ve found one. This dexter-russell is a near spitting image of the one dad had and that one was made, if i remember correctly, in the 1930’s. I love the heft and feel of this steel. I played with it for a bit using some of my wife’s cheap-o kitchen knives and in short time it all began coming back to me. I went to work on her good knives, first a little stone work, then to the steel. What a pleasure to have an edge that quickly slices through a crusty smoked brisket, and it’s still sharp as ever when you finish.
My boyfriend uses it to sharpen every knife he has. Great price and shipped fast.
Works great and sharpens our knives perfectly and with ease.
This is the nicest steel i’ve ever used. I first used a friend of mines dexter-russell but i didn’t know the brand, when i saw this i had to purchase. The steel is just the right hardness and puts an outstanding hone on the blade. The only drawback is the 14″ seems a little long for my needs and that’s not a real issue.
I cut meat for 10 years and this is the exact steel i used. My gf moved in and thought it was part of an old rotisserie and tossed it.
This thing is heavy duty and will take some steel off your blades. Use this on less expensive knives for commercial work or this to get your fancy knives sharp and then hone with ceramic.
Maintains knives extremely well.
I will buy another one for my second home. I have a victorinox that i bought just prior to this one. I have bought both victorinox and dexter-russell butcher knives. In my opinion dexter-russell is by far the better product.
Different surface than others & better.
I have an old one that belonged to my first ex-wifes meat cutter step dad. It’s about seventy years old and getting pretty smooth. I still use it after the new one once in awhile.
At my age this is probably the last steel that i will ever need. It does a great job and i am very pleased with the quality.
This is a great product that works. This is something you buy for life.
This butcher steel is the right texture to sharpen your everyday knives. This is a long steel, but works really well.
I like this one best of all them. You will not be disappointed if you get one of these.
I always wanted a real steel, now i got one. This is not your moma’s ten dollar kitchen drawer model.
The handle is of nice quality wood and the steel length is nice, a little longer for you kitchen knives. Ali’s has nice guard in the bottom which also keeps it from rolling on the counter if you put it down. Also has nice ring on the end for hanging when not in use. Used it to sharpen my pocket knife and with about three or four swipes on each side and it sharpened the blade very nicely.
