"Steeling" not good for knife sharpening.

Steeling, using the typical corrugated metal steels sold in kitchen shops, is NOT ideal for sharpening quality kitchen knives. The corrugations destroy any edge and leave a rough, saw-like edge.
All knife manufacturers recommend sharpening knives on waterstones of between 600 to 6,000 grit.
For touch-ups in the kitchen, a ceramic rod, used like a steel, will re align and touch up the edge.
Throw the corrugated steel in the trash.
