Introducing our new Black Ceramic Honing Rods SRB-104 10 length! There are two significant improvements to this rod:
  • Grooved on two opposite sides for more aggressive honing. Rotate the rod 90 and use the two smooth sides for a finer finish on your edges.
  • Streamlined rubber tip protector is the same diameter as the rod for a sleeker, modern look.

    The revolutionary new black ceramic honing rod by MAC offers the optimum steel core and break resistant design.

    The ceramic measures 10.5" in length and the center is filled with latex and the tip is protected by a polypropylene cap to cushion and absorb shocks.

  • Weight: 8.8 ounces
  • Rod Length: 10.5"
  • Overall Length: 16"
  • Rod Diameter: 15.8 mm

    This honing rod is outstanding! Turned my Tojiro into a razor in a few passes per side. Even German steel is easy to make really sharp. Why even have good knives if you can’t keep them sharp? This rod makes it easy.

    This is a good honing rod. It’s a pretty good deal for a solidly built ceramic rod.

    This is a great ceramic rod. I use it almost daily to keep my edges up to par. I was worried about packing a ceramic rod in my knife bag until I got this one. I have been carrying it in my knife bag now for about a year and it shows no sign of breakage. This is a great product.

    I purhcased this ceramic and was not happy. It was way to fine of a grit to make any difference. I ended up goign with the messemiester ceramic rod and I am So much happier wiht this purchase.

    More agressive than a steel -- requires more skill,delivers faster results

    This ceramic rod corrects all the other minor issues I had with the first version of the ceramic rod (i.e. breakage,coloring,etc.) I’ve used it for a few weeks now and the grooves on the side make honing my knives very easy! If you’re in the market for a ceramic rod,buy this one - you won’t regret it! Thank you,Mark for all your great recommendations and help in acquiring such awesome tools!!!

    Not a big fan of the rubber tip at all. Other than that it’s a great product.

    it works great just like it says it will I like the two different sides that it has,so depending on how dull your knife is you can choose what side to use

    Excellent value for money steel. This steel alone will cover all your needs. Has 2 zones for honing - aggressive and smooth,so you get 2 in one. Also being ceramic it is also well suited to Japanese knives. I think this steel could be improved with 2 changes. It should be a bit longer at say 12 inches. Also I don’t care for the rubber end. For those who hone with the steel horizontal,you may find that the rubber end just gets in the way.

    This is a wonderful hone. I really like that it has a coarser side for knives that haven’t been kept up. It really makes keeping edges sharp. I would highly recommend this as a stand alone or to compliment a standard steel.

    I love the two sides for honing on this rod.

    Keeps my knives scary sharp between stone sharpening,and does it’s job.



    Well built and worth every penny.

    This honing rod is just a great product. It is solidly constructed,and the two-surface design is both clever and very effective. Until now I have used a Global ceramic rod,but I prefer the feel and performance of the MAC.

    I recently acquired a Tojiro DP Gyuto and the MAC Black Ceramic Honing Rod.



    Decided to put the honing rod to the ultimate test on an old,questionably sharp santoku from the local housewares store.

    After completing the requisite ’before’ test,I gave the old knife seven passes over the grooved side of the rod. The ’after’ test results were incredible.I spent the next several minutes turning several pages of the new phone book into a pile of yellow shredded paper.



    The mind reels at what the test would have yielded if the knife had a proper edge.

    One major problem...

    The diameter of the rod is too thick to fit in the honing steel slot in my Sur La Table knife block.

    It’s a great piece but if you want to store it in a block measure it first.
