The Work Sharp Retractable Honing Rod features a fine-grit ceramic rod for quickly, easily and precisely sharpening and honing knives and scissors. The compact, durable handle features an angle guide that allows you to achieve a perfect 25-degree edge on each side of the blade; it also protects the retracted rod from damage and allows you to store the tool on a belt clip or in a pocket so it’s on hand for use in the field.

“The honing guide automatically registered a sharpening angle that was easy to maintain for the entire stroke, leaving a keen edge on knives and scissors. It’s great for campers who appreciate the portability.”
“I like the size and effectiveness of the Work Sharp Retractable Honing Rod and that the ceramic rod retracts back into the handle. It is easy to carry around in your pocket for use anywhere.”
