The STEELPORT 12” Oval Ceramic Honing Rod is an ideal tool for anyone who owns a quality kitchen knife, thoughtfully designed for home and professional chefs alike to ensure their knives stay in peak performance.

Regularly using a quality honing rod is recommended to maintain the sharpness of any kitchen knife. All knives need to be sharpened eventually (removing metal), but regular honing will extend the blades performance, and reduce the frequency of needing to sharpen, in-turn increasing the lifespan of the knife.

The oval shape of the new STEELPORT honing rod maximizes surface area, allowing for quicker and more effective honing, while the ceramic material ensures durability and resistance to wear. Paired with the contoured walnut handle, this honing rod offers a comfortable and secure grip for effortless maintenance of any knife.

The STEELPORT 12″ Oval Ceramic Honing Rod is the epitome of versatility combining several key features to make it unlike any other honing rod available:

Large 12″ Length: Allows for smooth full strokes of the entire blade edge, making it suitable for knives of all sizes.>
Ceramic Rod: The exceptionally hard ceramic surface is ideal for realigning the microscopic edges of any kitchen knife, regardless of the knife’s steel hardness. Unlike steel rods, ceramic’s material is hard enough for any blade and will never wear out. The choice of grit is the perfect balance between efficiency and finesse to produce in a quality edge.>
Efficient Oval Shape: Unlike round rods, the oval shape maximizes contact with the blade for more consistent honing action. >
Contoured Wood Handle with Safety Guard: Crafted from US-sourced walnut, the ergonomic contoured handle shape ensures comfortable and safe use. A steel core between the rod and handle provides additional durability and balance.>
American Made: Like all STEELPORT knives, each STEELPORT Honing Rod is handcrafted by a small team of artisans in Portland, Oregon.

The STEELPORT 12″ Oval Ceramic Honing Rod is a natural extension of STEELPORT’s line of American forged and handcrafted heirloom cutlery, and an excellent addition to any kitchen with quality knives.
