Pros: Durability, Ease of Use, Effectiveness, Overall Quality
Great flexibility still like to have a polished steel as well
I've owned one of these, DMT DS2E 12 extra fine steels for six or seven years now. It is my final step when sharpening. It serves very well for touch up sharpening for well maintained blades. It is simple and safe to use while the plastic handle is fine since it saves money and keeps this steel series affordable.
