== A knife sharpening steel can be reconditioned with a fine grade sandpaper.== Generally, no, a butcher's steel does not get "dull" and need replacing. A sharpening steel is just a piece of hardened steel that is used to reset the edge on a knife. Every knife, regardless of the brand, quality or method of sharpening, ends up with an edge that (at some power of magnification) looks like a saw. Little "teeth" stick out, and this is the business end of the blade. As a knife is used, the "teeth" (which are sometimes called "feathers"), bend. And you can see where we're going. The sharpening steel is a big chunk of hardened steel (with or sometimes without the "groves" in it) that is used to realign the feathers of the edge. It bends them back into alignment along the edge to restore the ability of the knife to cut efficiently. The steel is highly unlikely to wear out in a users lifetime. Some sharpening steels have been hanging in butcher shops for decades and are in fine shape, even though they have been (and continue to be) used multiple times in a day. Bon appétit!

Most of the cheaper stainless steel knives are made out of lower grade steel, softer than granite. They will dull quite quickly in that service. True knife steel, the 440 series MAY scratch the granite, depending on the quality, which one of the 440's its made out of and how it was heat treated.
Majority of the knives are made out of steel, an iron based alloy. However, several other types of materials are used in various types of knives such as titanium and cobalt based alloys, still metal, but not steel. Glass, obsidian, plastic and ceramics are also used in knifemaking. For more information regarding knife steels and other alloys check the attached links.

I doubt that you will be able to find a stainless steel knife block anywhere. Knife blocks are made of wood or plastic so that they cause minimal damage to a knife when inserting it in the block. A stainless steel knife block would not only be incredibly heavy, it would damage the knife blades whenever one was inserted or removed.
