Dual Surface 8” Ceramic Honing Rod

Get a cutting-edge, intense, and strong finish with the dual surface ceramic honing rod. This feature includes a coarse side for hasty touch-ups while you’re sharpening and a smooth side for honing your knives. The honing aids in maintaining the edge of your knives for a prolonged period of time so it can provide you with perfect effectivity and durability.

Exclusive MicroForge Technology

With the exclusive MicroForge Technology located in the handle of honing rod, the Work Sharp Culinary E5 can create a durable, long-lasting, and advanced edge function for a more efficient and precise cutting control. By creating the micro-facets to one side of the blade’s edge, a combination of faceted and straight cutting edges are produced. The applied micro-facets improve the quality of the knife while maintaining its finest performance. The Proprietary MicroForge is an optional, cold-forged edge that turns any knife into a chopping machine with more precision, control, and four times the typical edge retention.

Additional features include digitally-controlled modes that allow precise sharpening. It also has an expandable guide kit that lets you create several opportunities for 15, 17, and 20 degree angles. Likewise, the modes allow for possible repairs on family heirloom knives and get them sharper than the day they were made or keep a bleeding-edge Shun sashimi sharp.

Final Thoughts

According to the traditional belt sharpening practices, the Work Sharp Culinary E5 makes a sharp-as-new edge the exact same way the knife manufacturers sharpen their knives at the factory.

The high-performance sharpening belts, controlled speeds, precision sharpening guides, and other features allow the E5 knife sharpener to be gentle, precise, and easy on knives. The dual grit ceramic honing rod makes use of the sharpening guides for constant edge refinement and includes a MicroForge port to cool down the forge micro-facets along the cutting edge. A MicroForge edge improves the cutting performance, produces better knife control, and extends edge durability.

When you’re ready to begin preparing a meal, just a few strokes along the honing rod and your knives are ready to go. Honing preserves the cutting effectiveness of your knives and extends intervals between sharpening. Maintaining your edges preserves the value of your cutlery and lets you continue to enjoy the art of cooking!
