About the White Rod:
This white honing rod works great when maintaining ultra hard knife steels like Powdered Steel and Aogami Super. We love this white honing rod when sharpening because it does an awesome job of cleaning the burrs off an edge. At 6000 grit, its slightly coarser than the black rod.
About the Black Rod:
Equivalent to an 8000 grit finishing stone, this black honing rod is perfect for maintaining a knife’s edge between sharpenings. 3-6 strokes on each side of the blade will keep it silky and awesome. Forget what you’ve seen from the TV chefs. You don't need a ton of pressure or speed. Just be precise and gentle.
Looking for the bonus round of Knifenerd level sharpness? Complete the trifecta by using the white rod, the black rod, and then the leather strop.
