This is a really terrific ceramic hone. Like all Idahones it has a great feel and works very well. I find the Idahones to be superior to any other brand I’ve tried. The plastic sheath is really brilliant- it protects the hone from damage,and when you draw the ceramic from the sheath the opposite end had a socket that holds the rod,allowing the entire length of the sheath to serve as a handle. Very slick!0.3
I carry this one and a HA Borosilicate Glass hone in my work roll at all times. If either broke I’d be on the horn to CKtG for a replacement ASAP! For twenty bucks I gotta call this one a no-brainer!
