Introducing the CKTG Black Ceramic Sharpening Rod. We think this rod is superior to the Idahone fine ceramic rod that we also sell for most pro users and culinary students. The primary improvement is that the rod uses higher quality ceramic material with 8 Mohs hardness and it's also nice and straight. It measures 270mm and the rod itself has a 16mm diameter. The handle on it is made from high impact plastic that is light and durable and has a nice ring on the end for hanging if you desire. Grit level on this rod is 2K and will put a nice edge on your knives quickly and effectively.

  This thing really works!, July 14, 2021
Posted By: Matt

After a year of near daily use (and a little abuse) I started to notice my Tojiro DP wasn't cutting as well and there was faint differences in shimmer on the edge when looking so I decided it was time for either honing or sharpening rod... so glad I got this one! As a total beginner it took six strokes on each side and my Tojiro passed every test... paper, hair and onions cut flawlessly!

I hope I can perfect my technique over time but for anyone debating on what to get you can't go wrong here.

  Very good product for professional environment, February 12, 2021
Posted By: Tunca

Got this as a lightly used secondhand. Gave it cleaning with soap, sponge and warm water. As a kitchen professional, I have Been using it on knives made of various steels. X50cr15mov, Sandvik 12c27m, shun vg max, vg5, shirogami, 1095, aus8, 4116, chromax, sg2 and zdp189. Very good on already sharp softer steels and the ceramic is fine enough for harder premium steels. Saves a lot of time and helps with postponing the process of setting up a multiple whetsone sharpening session. Highly recommend.

  Black Ceramic CKTG Honing rod, December 10, 2020
Posted By: Alyssa - verified customer

Use it everyday between monthly whetstone sharpenings. Leaves a little grippy type of sharpness, which I enjoy in a commercial kitchen.

  Best honer I've used, November 24, 2020

This is the best ceramic honer I've used. Well worth the money. This is the first one that I could legitimately tell a difference in edge sharpness after using.

I had an edge pro ceramic rod that I somehow lost. Got this one. Seems to do a little better job and is easier to use because it is bigger and has a nice handle.

  Great for Harder Cabon Steel blades, September 17, 2019
Posted By: Caleb Janicich - verified customer

I never thought much of "sharpening rods" but man this thing puts a wicked edge back on my carbon steel Japanese knife! The leather case should come with it but was essential for me as it'll be knocking around in the knife drawer.

Better than any steel I have ever owned, hones to a beautifully sharp edge everytime, really helps preserve a razor edge from repetitive cutting.

  Performs exactly as described, July 9, 2019
Posted By: ronnie_suburban

This rod brought back the edges on some knives that have been well-maintained but not sharpened in a while. A few light strokes on each side of their blades and they came back to life. All in all, a very satisfying and useful purchase.

I purchased this black ceramic rod based on reviews. It works excellent for its role in the kitchen and it also looks stunning. This is a terrific product though I am now progressing towards whetstones.

Very good product. That said, be warned, it likely won't fit in a standard consumer knife block.

  An Excellent Honing Tool, August 14, 2017
Posted By: DJFund - verified customer

CKTG's ceramic honing rod enables me to effectively hone my Japanese, French and German knives. I've used it on my Kikuichi gyuto and santoko, as well as my 40 year old Sabatier carbon chefs knife and Wusthoff stainless knives. Thanks to Mark for his advice and product sourcing.

  Excellent (as expected)!!, January 10, 2017
Posted By: Jerry S - verified customer

First, a general comment. Chef Knives To Go offers an outstanding level of customer service. Before making the purchase I had a lot of questions. All were answered in a prompt and helpful manner. The ceramic rod itself is great. I had never used one before. The very helpful videos on the CKTG site and the input provided in the emails got me squared away in short order. The rod is easy to use and does a great job. If this beginner can quickly get a very sharp edge on a dull blade anyone can. No hesitations in recommending CKTG or this ceramic rod!!

Awesome for putting a quick edge on the blade, I use it while butchering and the plastic handle makes for easy gripping/cleaning with gross fingers. Love it.

  Outstanding!, June 4, 2016
Posted By: John B - verified customer

This honing rod is outstanding! I used it on my Tojiro and it made it razor sharp in a few passes per side. It worked equally well on my German knives too.
