Black Ceramic Honing Rod 11"
Our 11" Black Ceramic ceramic honing Rod is perfect for maintaining the edge of your Japanese Knife. With a grit equivelent to a 2000 whetsone it will repair the blade without wearing it away.
For this reason we would not recommend a diamond steel.
Easy to use and protected by a 3-part shock absorber the honing rod is seriously hard, with a HRC of 60-63 it is hard wearing and long lasting.
Notice the difference. Periodically 5-10 gentle swipes at a 10-15 degree angle on each side of the edge will ensure a razor sharp finish time after time...
