10.5-inch Black Ceramic Honing Rod
The Mac Black Ceramic Honing Rod is an extremely hard 81° Rockwell compared to metal rods ("steels") at 62° and white ceramic rods at 76°. The rod must be significantly harder than the steel blade so that the softer blade hones when rubbed against the harder rod. Mac knives are among the hardest available at 58 - 60° and therefore should only be honed using ceramic rods. Other brands of knives generally range 52°-57° and can easily be honed with the Black Ceramic Honing Rod.
