The Victorinox (formerly Forschner*) 10 inch Round Regular Cut Sharpening Steel with Rosewood Handle has a round steel and a handsome dark wood handle. It is made in Sheffield, England exclusively for Victorinox.
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.
