Ceramic Honing Rod 26cm - Edgemaster

Professional-grade kitchen knife ceramic honing rod. When it comes to keeping Japanese steel knives sharp, a ceramic honing rod beats a steel honing rod.

Why's that? Most steel honing rods are designed for softer steel, and have a 58-60HRC steel construction. When choosing a honing rod, you need material that is harder than your knife steel. Ceramic honing rods are much harder (around 80HRC), so are better for Japanese steel that start around 60HRC.

The slightly abrasive finish on the ceramic will gradually transform your bevel so make sure to put your knives over a whetstone every few months to remove fatigued steel, and to correct the bevel angle.

  • 26cm (10") sharpening length
  • Reinforced steel hand guard 
  • Non-slip handle with loop for hanging
  • Ideal for all kitchen knives including Japanese high-carbon steel
