5 people found this review helpfulWithout a doubt the best sharpening/honing steel available on the market. In fact, at my workplace, about 99.9% of the steels used by my colleagues are F. Dick of one variety or other. But the Multicut Fine Flat Steel featured here is the daddy of them all. Of course, a sharpening steel will only ultimately hone your knife blade and will not repair a badly damaged edge that can only really be achieved by either a whetstone, oilstone, or grinder. But in my experience as a butcher, the F. Dick Multicut will maintain your edge longer than any other steel. It will keep your blade going sharp and strong right up until a quick rub on a stone to realign the edge is absolutely necessary. And then back to steeling your knife for a long time. Adding pressure with your knife whilst running it along the Multicut will vastly sharpen your blade and light steeling will hone it. It is an incredibly well made, durable (a colleague of mine has used his day in, day out for 16 years and still going strong), and spectacularly preforming steel. Do not settle for less. It may be an expensive bit of kit, but you get what you pay for here, and the Multicut is worth more than every penny.
