Idahone Ceramic Honing Rod

Sharpening steels and honing rods cannot sharpen a very dull blade (the blade needs to be reground) but, if you keep up with it, this honing rod can keep your knives sharp. We prefer this ceramic rod to the typical metal rods – we feel that it sharpens more quickly and efficiently. Beware however—ceramic is brittle and will shatter if dropped.
