Worn out beyond effective use. Dissapointed as its only received light use and given the price and brand! May try contacting Henkles fwiw. Will update if anything positive comes of that- but don't hold your breath! Star rating reduced- now 2* from initial 4*simply as it was ok, while it lasted!
Bought this after returning another steel from Amazon ('cheapest genuine German diamond steel') as a replacement for a Fischer steel which after ~15yrs of excellent service virtually wore out! Whilst this Henckles one is better than the cheaper one I returned its not as nice in the hand as the Fischer, largely due to the handle being a tad on the small side and not at all economically shaped. I don't have shovels for hands either. I'll no dougt get used to the 'feel' and if used as recommend, ie holding steel vertically to work top and running knives from handle to tip, shouldn't pose a problem at all. I however, have always sharpened my knives the 'chefy' :-D flash harry way- holding steel like a lollipop and flicking blade v shaped either side. This way the handle just isn't than comfy to hand. As far as sharpening goes, my range of Henckles knives are once again razor sharp, so I'm willing to overlook the minor issue of comfort.
I received a Henkels steel as a birthday gift. I can only say I am glad I did not purchase it myself. Completely blunt after one year of light home use. Used once a week to sharpen the household carving knife. Totally useless now and no better than a conventional steel in the first place.
