Cool, now let's see how many who use steels drag the knife up towards one's hand and how many know the proper way which is always away from the hand for either side of the knife. I was at my knife club meeting recently and a bunch of steels were brought in for show and tell and everybody said they drag the blade up on the back of the knife. When I showed them how to always use a down stroke they said I was nuts although I once worked in a large commercial kitchen and the chefs trained me to always run the blade down the steel away from my hand for both sides of the blade. Of course BSA knife training always stresses to never cut with the edge toward any part of your body.
