Sharpening Steel

Nocontact | Jan 6, 2012 04:10 PM

My Girlfriend was nice enough to buy my a Henckel 8" Chef's knife for Christmas but now I'm worried about treating it right!
I wanted to buy a steel, but wasn't sure if I had to spring for the Henckel sharpening steel or if I can get away with a generic brand. The difference is about $60 so it is significant. I really want to treat this blade right and make it last so I'd be willing to spend if I have to, I just want to make sure I'm not paying for a brand name.
It's the twin 4-star Chef's knife.
Thanks!
