Ceramic steel for Global Chef's Knife

mliew | Jan 4, 2008 04:44 PM

I apologize if this question has been asked before, I searched but couldn't find anything specifically about this.

I just bought a Global 8" Chef's Knife and according to them I should only use a ceramic steel on it. It seems there is varying opinion as to whether or not a ceramic steel is absolutely necessary vs. using a regular steel.

So I have some questions:

1. Do I really need to use a ceramic steel on it?
2. If so, do I need the Global ceramic steel, or are all ceramic steels pretty much the same? The Global ceramic steel is much more expensive than other brands it seems, around $100 whereas a MAC 8.5" ceramic steel is only $15.

Thanks.
