This Global diamond honing steel has industrial-grade microdiamonds embedded into the steel rod. This rod is not intended for sharpening. The diamond abrasives should last a lifetime with proper care and use; however, over time they will become less abrasive but still perfect for honing.

I have had the Global G-38/B, 10 Inch Diamond Honing Steel for about a month and used it on multiple knives (mostly global knives) and found it an excellent tool. A few passes on each side and the blade is razor sharp slicing through, meats, melons or vegetables with ease. I like a sharp knife and this tool fits perfectly.
Finally, Sointu is a great company to purchase from as they offer top shelf customer service to compliment their product line.
