Oval Ceramic Sharpening Rod

Smith’s 9″ Oval Ceramic Sharpening Rod can do anything a traditional rod can do only better. The handguard and non-slip tip are nice touches, making this sharpening rod safer to use than most on the market today. The retail price of $14.98 is very reasonable for a quality honing rod like this.

The Downside?

Smith’s Edge has the market covered when it comes to their knife sharpeners. They don’t however, sell knives or suggest which knives to use. Perhaps in the future, they’ll see the need to perfect their line by offering high quality chef knives, French knives, and serrated bread knives that complement their sharpeners.
