The sharpening steels are manufactured in Sheffield, England, exclusively distributed in the U.S. by R.H. Forschner. This 12" solid rod steel has a black nylon handle. Diamond Steels will actually remove metal from the knife blade. They can quickly put an edge on a knife that cannot be sharpened with a regular steel. **The NSF mark is a certification of quality assurance and hygienic design. The National Sanitation Foundation mark is proudly carried on all R.H. Forschner blades with a fibrox or nylon handle and assures you of quality and assurance to use in a commercial environment.
