Sharpening Steels are used for routine maintenance, to maintain a knifesí edge.
A steel is not a sharpening device, the purpose of a steel is to realign the bladesí edge, a term called truing. The job of a steel is to push the blades edge back into alignment.
Diamond Steels have diamond dust embedded into the steel. As a result the steel functions as a sharpener and trueing device, removing metal.
Use with caution:
Diamond Steels are abrasive and can remove large amounts of metal in a very short time.
Sharpening Devices are used to remove metal, in-order to create a new edge.
(Diamond Sharpening Steels can be placed in this catagory.)
