This is an interesting steel, quite different than a typical honing rod. It mildly abrasive coating, such that in addition to straightening your edge, it also removes a bit of material. In a way, it is a hybrid, somewhere in between a coarse honing steel and a ceramic rod.
In practice, it produces an edge with coarse micro-serations. In most situations, this isn\'t ideal since it results in the edge not lasting as long. I suggest following up with a fine cut steel to smooth it.

A simple and effective peeler. The peels it carves are very thin, which reduces the amount of food wasted. I also like that the side of the blade can be used as a carrot scraper, and the tip of the peeler can be used to dig out black spots in produce.
