How do I sharpen a sharpening steel?

Chefpaulo | Apr 14, 2008 03:50 PM

OK, maybe this is the dumbest post of the new millenium but do sharpening steels wear out to the point that they no longer perform? I have a Henkels that used to have finely rifled ridges and did a great job. After 18 years, its pretty smooth and with not much improvement to the knives after sharpening (I know, technique a topic for another post). So, do these get chucked or can they be revitalized?
