Big John Super Stick Ceramic Sharpening Rod

"Great value" is how I would sum up the Big John Super Stick Ceramic Sharpening Rod by Smoky Mountain Knife Works. It features an overall length of 16", a 1" diameter ceramic sharpening rod and a lifetime warranty, all for an amazingly low $6.49! Try digging up a deal like that at your local kitchen supply or knife outlet.

Apart from its low price, what I like about this ceramic sharpening rod compared to others is its large diameter. I believe this feature offers a superior sharpening and honing contact area and also give you better control while running the blade along its length.

I began using it the day it was delivered and it's a great tool for the money. I use it to put a new edge on mildly dull knives or to finely hone the edge of a freshly sharpened knife. It easily out performs my expensive old honing steel in most applications.

If I had to offer criticisms I would point that it is a bit hefty compared to a traditional hone, which may be a concern for some cooks and chefs. It also arrived with a slightly loose handle, but a quick adjustment fixed that without issue.

If you're looking for an inexpensive and effective sharpening and honing solution for your home kitchen, I have no problem offering the Chop Onions, Boil Water seal of approval to Smoky Mountain Knife Works Big John Super Stick Ceramic Sharpening Rod.
