Sharpening/honing steel brand?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Hi all,

I bought a handmade chef's knife in Argentina (amazing all around, by the way!), and when I bought it the guy told me to only hone it with a smooth steel, not a textured/grit one. It's a stainless alloy, but I don't know what, exactly. I just got back and have been using it daily at work, and it's in desperate need of a good honing. All we have at work is a textured steel, so it looks like I need to buy one, and asap. Does brand matter, or is a sharpening steel a sharpening steel?

Thanks!

Idahone is often recommended and they're not expensive.
