J.A. Henckels 32565-260 ZWILLING Accessories Sharpening Steel, 10-inch, Black/Stainless : Top Gun

Needed a sharpening steel to dress some knives because the one that was with the set i was using had a nick that seemed to do more harm than good. This one works as well or better than any other i had use before.

This feels like a quality product, and it has the weight you’d expect a good steel to have. It makes a nice addition to my knife block.

  • For most home chefs the sharpening steel will realign the edge and remove any niche or burr. An oval rod provides more surface contact with the edge to achieve same results as traditional rod but with fewer strokes.

Product is just as described, works very well. It is not a sharpener and i use it accordingly.

This honing steel is still keeping my knives sharp several years after purchase. Everyone who owns knives should own a honing steel. Remember, however, that this does not sharpen knives but rather simply sets the edge. There is a difference between a knife sharpener and a honing steel. Not everyone knows how to use one of these. My advice is that you look at a video on [. – there are several videos that demonstrate how to use a honing steel. ]

There isn’t much to say about this item other than it works exactly as expected. Before purchasing my bubba blade fillet knife (which by the way is the finest fillet knife i’ve ever owned) i sharpened my fillet knives with an electric sharpener. Bubba blade recommends that their knives are maintained with a honing steel, as opposed to constantly sharpening them. A few passes of the blade across this steel is all that is needed to hone the edge of my knife, making it ready to expertly remove the unwanted skin from speckled trout, flounder and redfish, which is my main desire in life. In short, the steel is made of fine quality materials and is extremely easy to use. I will probably purchase another one, just to keep for the future.

I cook for a livin’ and i have many honing steels, some at 14′ for my big knives and this one for my 8′ and under knives. I got this one in an upscale set of 4 starz and i do love it. As previously reviewed, it’s not for sharpening but used to maintain a sharp edge. If you use this properly every time you use a new knife then the factory edge will last for months if not years under normal usage. If you are collecting the 4 star line then this is a must, it is one of the most attractive steels made, the rockwell rating is harder than any factory production blade made, the grooving is crisp and it is a bargain compared to other brands. A must replacement for a lesser steel in most 4 star sets. It would be worth your time and money to buy the knife care video and learn how to use this well. An investment for your future enjoyment of henckels 4 star knives. We hand out 5 mojo*z for this steel magnolia.

As other reviewers have mentioned, this does not actually sharpen your knives in the sense that it won’t put an angle on your blade that isn’t already there. However, what this is great for is keeping your set of kitchen knives in good (and safe) condition. Note to novices: make sure to ask a pro or an experienced cook how to use a steel. If you hold the knife at the wrong angle, you may actually be reversing the effect the steel is supposed to have – realigning the blade to its sharpest position. Note 2: a lot of blades these days are made with the higher-end cobalt alloy steel that is significantly harder than regular stainless. All this really means is that if you have a good knife, you technically won’t have to use this every time you slice and dice, but it’s still a good idea to keep the knife in the best condition possible.

This one is identical to the one we had for over 20 years. We thought it might be time to replace it as the original seemed to have lost some of its effectiveness. After using this one, we were sorry we had not ordered a new one ages ago. A few swipes and you’ve got a nice sharp blade.

Works as expected, didn’t expect anything less.

There were some scratches on the handle, one was a little deep bad enough for me to send ot back. Other than that it works great on my new j.

I worked as a chef for 15 years before changing careers. Buying a new set of knives for home kitchen and bought this to replace an older well loved and well used steel. Used this one a few times and works great. Looks to be very well built and solid.

If you bought good knives, like the henckels four star series, keep them good by regularly honing the edge with a henckels steel. A few swipes against my chef’s knife keeps the edge keen and ready to cut. I struggled for years with cheap knives only to find that a good sharp knife is a blessing to a cook. So keep it sharp with a good steel.

The product is of high quality, and the price is more than fair. I am very satisfied with my purchase.

Sure makes a difference when i sharpen my knives. I use a sharpener and then the hone great.

Love this item does not scratch my knives. When i first looked at it it looked like it will not sharpen my knives but it works perfectly.

Serrated edge helps left handed users somewhat.

The product is constructed beautifully. It has a nice weight, good handle feel and textured steel. The only problem is that it was sent without proper packaging, no instructions for usage and storage. Is there a warranty on the product?.

Tried purchasing a kitchen aid brand and wasn’t impressed with the sharpening.

Excellent product and transaction.

What else do you need to know.
