Regular knife use inevitably causes the blade's edge to curl on the microscopic level, which results in poor performance and more difficult, less safe cuts. Running the blade's length along the honing rod will re-align the blade to its original sharpness, but ceramic honing rods have the added benefit of actually being harder than knife steel! This means that each pass on a ceramic rod actually gently abrades the knife, removing steel and actually sharpening in addition to honing. Using a honing rod regularly as part of food preparation will extend the lifespan of your knives considerably.
This ceramic honing rod is 17" long with a 12" rod, which is an ideal size for knives up to 12" long. Ceramic rods pair well with ultra-hard, brittle knives, and work wonders on high-quality Asian blades that typically require a sharpening stone. The ergonomic handle supports both horizontal and vertical grips when honing, and the handle's flared design keeps fingers protected. When not in use, the rod can be easily hung from its loop for no-hassle storage
