Not all honing rods are created equal. The 10” honing rod from the Chikara Damascus series features a core made up very hard VG-1 Japanese stainless steel. The result is a honing rod that can withstand hours and hours of abrasions from knives without losing its durability or its straightness.
To give this blade its strength and edge, it is cryogenically cooled with liquid nitrogen to retain the sharpest edge possible by realigning the molecules of the stainless steel. Be sure to hand wash this rod only so as to preserve its finish, and enjoy a limited lifetime warranty on your purchase!
