Not sure the hardness of this steel, but when I use it I pretend its a 60hrc, so no super steels!
Does a great job on pocket knives along with kitchen blades. I bought this steel for my big outdoor blades and machetes made out of 10 series carbon (1055, 1095) works like a charm. If you have never used a polished steel I recommend it. Mine came with a couple dents on the steel, so other than than fantastic. I see why people go nuts over these now!

This homing rod keeps my knives razor sharp on the line all day long. If you want to keep your edge and not constantly resharpen, this is the steel for you. Like the other reviews said however that doesn't sharpen your knife like other rods, it just pushed the edge back to razor sharpness.

After using a smooth [prepped with sandpaper daily] packer's steel years ago, I've never been happy with the grooved butchers steels seen everywhere.
Bought this, gave it about 50 strokes of sandpaper from tip to handle, and a few strokes brought a couple decent knifes to razors. My arms have less hair now.
As noted in other reviews, a steel doesn't sharpen a knife, it just makes a sharp knife awesome sharp and helps keep it that way.
Mine came already magnetic too. I hope that it stays magnetized; that seems to give a bit extra magic to a packer's steel.

Fantastic honing steel! Ideally, we would all have polishing stones at the ready to touch up our edges at a moment's notice and push things back into line but sadly this is not the case in the real world. This steel will keep your edge at its peak throughout the work day without wasting your time or the metal on your knife.

Excellent honing steel. Smooth, hard finish that works great at aligning the edge without dulling it. Far better than those serrated honing steels and the price is right.

This steel is amazing, not only does is keep all my kitchen knives hair popping sharp, I also steel my pocket knives on it.
Even the ultra hard steel S30V is improved on this steel. It makes the edge RIDICULOUS.

However you better know how to sharpen a knife first. It won't do much to a already dull blade. it doesn't cut the edge it just shapes and removes imperfections, by kinda melting the edge to ultra smooth ness. I saw some online pics of a smooth steeled edge under a microscope, it's very smooth.

I am very pleased with this F Dick polished steel. It works great on all my knives, including my K-Sabatier carbons. One or two very gentle strokes per side is what is recommended for soft carbons.

Very good steel. This what Cargill Foods Meat Solution in High River, Alberta, Canada issues to their employees.

Sand it with 120 before first time use. Sand until smooth. Some people use 120 grit, and some use 600grits, and other even use 1200grits. All depends on preference.

Love this steel. This is was Cargill Foods (Excel Meat, Cargill Meat Solutions, etc) give to their employees at the High River meat packing plant.

FYI -- We always sand the steal with 100grit and we move with the scale with the grits depending on our tastes. Some move up to 600+ grits, while some stay at 200 grits. The best knive sharpener that I've ever met only used 200 grits. MASTERY; SKILLS?

Combine this steel, Razor Edge sharpening kit, and some practise with a steel. You'll have extremely sharp knive, HAIR POPPING!

Great steel. It has no grooves but is smooth polished which is rare. I use it every day. It does a wonderful job keeping the knives sharp.
