Does the steel really make the difference?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Does the type of steel really matter as long as it hones ones blade to its users delight? What do y'all thing and what are some brands I could compare hand and hand? Do the diamond steels really make the difference or will my average non diamond infused steel do the same job? Y'all decide

"Type of steel" = honing rod? Stay away from diamond steels, they don't "hone," they sharpen- and poorly, leaving you with a rough, poorly defined edge. And, the type of steel can make a difference, depending on your knife. E.g., if you have a knife harder than your steel, the steel won't hone it & may get damaged.
Coarse, fine, smooth, ceramic, and stropping- they all have their adherants. Seems to be largely a matter of taste.
