great edge toolI am writing because
I am writing this brief note to make everyone aware that I disagree with the complainers. I have ordered two of these within the past 4 or 5 yrs. They are excellent and keep my knives razor sharp in the field. I have a steel that Buck used to make. It is retractable and lockable. It is my prize steel unfortunately Buck stopped making them. They were simply awesome and I would buy at least two more of those if buck could make them again. These two old timers work just as well and I frequently use them in the field where razor sharp to me means hair splitting sharp. Most knife owners do not know how to sharpen their knives that sharp. These honing steels do a tremendous job primarily because I know how to use them and that these are great steels. I give five stars and more for these steels. An old friend of mine who raises hogs has to do castrations frequently and as least painfully as possible to the critter. I was awed by his blade sharpness and so he showed me how to do it. Complainers need someone to teach them. Issue settled !!!

I purchased this hone steel from BATTENFELD PRODUCTS and it was delivered very quickly. When I inspected the item it was very clear that there was a problem with the surface of the product. The grooves were not very deep at all. When I ran my knife blade across it I could not feel ANY drag. Almost like running across a smooth piece of steel.I found it to be very unsatisfactory and when the company sent me an e-mail asking me to fill out a survey, I did so stating the above. The customer service rep. was very sorry to hear this an promptly sent me another hone steel at no cost to me. This is something that they did not have to do and it was very much appreciated!When the replacement hone steel arrived I found it to be just as unsatisfactory as the first one. I used it in the normal way by running my knife blade across it still feeling no DRAG. I held the blade stationary and ran the hone steel across it like I was using a file.I still could not feel any DRAG. I have an old Schrade hone steel that I bought 20 some odd years ago. It was an OUTSTANDING product, made in the U.S.A. but is about worn out. I can still feel a DRAG when I run my blade across it.These new hone steels are made of a different grade of metal and made in China.It is my belief that there is no U.S.A. rep / inspector in China to insure that there is QUALITY CONTROL! I absolutely would not recommend buying this product

Review Retraction
After spending 4 hours trying to smooth out all the gouges on the sides of Old Timer Honesteel, I tried my EDC folder in AUS8 (57-59 HRC) on the Honesteel edge, like a butcher steel. When the blade hit a slight imperfection it went chattering along the Honesteel, taking metal off the Honesteel, leaving a washboard road effect on the Honesteel's edge. It appears the Honesteel wasn't hardened properly, if AUS8 can cut into it. >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> I sent the Honesteel to Batenfeld Technologies customer service, parent company of Old Timer, with a letter stating the problem, included e-mail, phone number, and address. That was three weeks ago, and I haven't heard a word back from them, as yet. >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> In the meantime, I ordered the Gossman Survival Tool, from Scott Gossman, of Gossman Knives (D2 steel). It is everything Old Timer Honesteel is supposed to be. See original review below.
