Description: This rod adds tremendous durability and break resistance to the world of ceramic honing rods, making it a perfect choice for professional chefs. Ceramic rods provide the best touch up possible between sharpening. By removing very little material, the blade is honed to a razor edge. Fine ceramic rods will hone a knife to the most optimal edge. Generally, a honing rod should be approximately the length of the longest knife that you will be honing. The rod measures 10 1/2 inches in length and has a total length of 16 2/3 inches including the handle. The ceramic is approx .65 inches in diameter.
- Black ceramic is harder than standard ceramic and makes sharpening harder, high-end Japanese knives easier, while still being an exceptional choice for European knives.
- The MAC black ceramic rod has the optimum grit to both hone and smoothly finished edges to razor sharpness
- A steel core reinforces the rod for strength. Break resistance is achieved by filling the center with latex. A polypropylene cap cushions the end and absorbs shocks.
