      yep sharping steel usually in a set with carving knife and fork

      Hi, English sharpening steels don't usually have 6 sides in my, somewhat limited, experience- could we have a close up of the blades please. Is it six pointed or six sided? In other words is it star shaped in cross section or hexagon in cross section?

      If hexagon- yes probably an odd sharpening steel
