The Mac Black Ceramic Honing Rod is made out of a new type of ceramic that is much harder than traditionally use white ceramic. The harder material quickly realigns blades and even works well for harder Japanese made Western style knives. The Mac Black Ceramic Honing Rod also features two grooved sides for more aggressive honing, and two smooth #2000 grit sides to polish blades. The tip of the rod has a rubber end cap to stabilize it on surfaces.
This unique sharpening rod is ideal for those using Japanese made Western knives in commercial kitchens.
