Material to make a small edc steel?

A typical "steel," like a butcher uses, is textured steel that is very hard. Middle to upper 60's HRC. I've seen D2 advertised, and I watched a YouTube video last night from the "How It's Made" tv series from which I was able to ascertain they were using a water hardening tool steel of some variety.

I've just never seen a honing or sharpening steel as small as you've described to take a better stab at what you're wanting.
