Tex_77 Sorry, I have not used that one. I will say this, for just sharpening that is as good as any steel I have used and the only one I would put above it is the Multi Cut Steel from F.D ck but that is about $130. That isn’t from a sharpening perspective either, as for just sharpening the Smiths is at least as good and almost certainly better. What I like about that multicut is that is can take a drastically knicked or folded edge and bring it back to true without taking a lot of material off of a knife. It also does a very good job honing the edge.
