Description

Lightweight and easy-to-use steel features a highly efficient ribbed surface for re-sharpening and a smooth surface for honing. Kyocera’s ceramic sharpening rods are made of advanced ceramic, a material close in hardness to diamond.

When your steel knife or cutting tool is dull, use the ribbed side to create a finely ribbed texture on the cutting edge. Then use the smooth surface to hone or finish the edge. If intense sharpening is not required, then honing should be sufficient to maintain a sharp edge. Not intended for use on ceramic knives or scissors.

ceramic honer
As a serious knife enthusiast & collector, I understand that keeping all my cutlery in tip top shape is important. This ceramic rod is brilliant in doing just that in between uses. Just a few passes on each side, I can prolong having to sharpen my knives dramatically and therefore I have lengthened the lives of my blades. Not to mention that a regular stainless steel is the same price, this ceramic honer is 10X harder and does a nicer job cleaning any ragged burrs. Great investment

Perfect
This is the best way to sharpen both European and Japanese knives. A honing steel will straighten the knife edge, but not remove material to sharpen. A sharpening stone with a low grit under 2000 can be too abrasive, and shorten the life of a blade. This cermaic sharpening steel is just right, around a 4000 grit that will remove material, but a very minimal amount, and give a good sharp edge. I use this about once a month, or every other week.

What is the grit or micron size of the ceramic abrasive?
A shopper on Jul 8, 2015
BEST ANSWER: According to Kyocera, there is not a "grit" for this steel because it isn't made like an actual steel & instead just has deep channels in it.
Do you use this to hone ceramic knives? If yes, how often is it recommended to do so
A shopper on Mar 18, 2013
BEST ANSWER: Ceramic knives cannot be honed or sharpened. They are extremely hard and do not lose their edge easily. This hardness does make them very brittle however and honing or sharpening could lead to chips and breakage of the blade.
