It is a great steel for use with all your knives. Its length is longer than most standard steels that come with your kitchen box sets. This might make storage a little harder. Again, it will work great on honing all of your kitchen knives. The main draw back is only its generic plastic handle. You don't need and shouldn't expect some sort of impressive handles on steels, but if I had to pick one thing to criticize, this would be the only thing.
