Sharpening rods: for the daily sharpening of your knives

Sharpening rods made from ceramic material or a diamond (diamond covered) outer are very suitable for the daily maintenance of your knife. The sharpening rod takes very little material away from your knife to make it sharper. A sharpening rod can also sharpen a bread knife. Contrary to the sharpening steel, a sharpening rod is a real sharpening tool. If you use a knife intensively you can use the sharpening rod daily or at regular intervals. Your knife will stay sharp and you can postpone major maintenance with a whetstone or a sharpener for a while.

Buying sharpening rods

If you are looking to buy the appropriate sharpening rod, we stock an extensive assortment at We have sharpening steels from Global, Wüsthof, Lansky and our home brand Eden. You will find the diamond sharpening rod and ceramic rod assorted to your knife set immediately. The ceramic rod by Eden has a good price/quality relation and is absolutely recommended. Make sure that the sharpening rod that you buy is longer than the knife you want to sharpen. Just as with sharpening steel, you sharpen from top to bottom along the sharpening steel, and you start at the handle of the knife and end with the tip.
