A classic tool that helps get the best from knives, this sharpening steel is a solidly crafted addition to any knife block. Between professional sharpenings, tiny metal fibers bend down on a blade, dulling the surface. The purpose of the sharpening steel is to straighten up those fibers, maintaining the sharpest edge possible for daily use. There's a page of instructions included for cooks who've never used one--while the correct angle is important, go slowly and you'll have the technique down before you know it. In this model, the weight is centered in the handle, which is more substantial than those on many other sharpeners, providing a nice balance for beginners. Just wipe it down as necessary--there's no need to give this tool a serious scrub. --Jill Lightner
