A ceramic honing rod, also called a ceramic sharpening steel, is a type of honing rod that has a ceramic surface instead of a steel one.
The ceramic surface of a honing rod is harder than most knife blades, which allows it to effectively sharpen and realign the edge of the knife. The ceramic material also does not rust or corrode, making it a durable and long-lasting option for honing knives.
To use a ceramic honing rod, the user holds the rod vertically and places the blade of the knife at a relevant angle against the ceramic surface. The knife is then pulled across the surface, starting at the base of the blade and moving towards the tip. This process helps to realign and straighten the edge of the knife, creating a sharper cutting surface.
Ceramic honing rods are a popular tool for both professional chefs and home cooks, as they are easy to use and maintain. It is important to note that a honing rod is not a substitute for a sharpening stone or professional sharpening service, as it only helps to maintain an already-sharp edge.
