The Victorinox (formerly Forschner*) 9-inch Regular Cut Sharpening Steel by Victorinox has a round steel and a plastic handle. It is made in Sheffield, England exclusively for Forschner.
When selecting a steel, choose one that is 2 inches longer than the knife you wish to sharpen.
A sharpening steel does not really "sharpen" the knife. Using a steel properly actually takes the rolled over edge off of a knife - in effect straightening, or realigning the knife blade, restoring its effectiveness.
Steel Length: 9 inches
*What happened to R.H. Forschner Cutlery? R.H. Forschner by Victorinox kitchen cutlery is now Victorinox cutlery. Only the name has changed. The quality, Swiss-made blades and safe, ergonomic Fibrox handles remain the same.
