A good ceramic steel is fantastic for keeping your kitchen knives sharp. This Messermeister Sharpening Rod has the same quality found in their traditional steels, but in lightweight fine grit ceramic. A perfect addition to your knife block.

Fine Grit Ceramic
The Messermeister Ceramic Steel is made of solid aluminum oxide ceramic in 1200 grit. Ideal for keeping knives at their sharpest. It is wear resistant, lightweight and non porous.

Messermeister Quality
Messermeister is well known for their quality and this ceramic steel is no exception. The 9/16" diameter (14mm) rod is a solid piece of aluminum oxide ceramic 10" long to allow for a smooth comfortable sharpening stroke. The ABS handle is generous and sturdy for a safe, comfortable grip.

14-1/2" Overall Length

Q. If it's made of ceramic, why is it called a steel?

A. Sharpeners like this were traditionally made of a steel rod on a handle, and so they were simply called steels. Indeed many fine steels are still made of steel. However, the name steel has come to be applied to any sharpener in the form of a rod with a handle. So now there are steel, ceramic and even diamond steels.

Q. How long of a steel should I use?

A. Ideally you want it to be 2" longer than your longest knife. For practical reasons, we suggest that a 10" is good for most home kitchens. The 12" is excellent but will often not fit in a knife block.

I recently placed my first order after finding you on the web while looking for grinding wheels. I am a customer for life. Here's why. My first order was a simple white grinding wheel for a "normal joe's shop". When I received the wrong wheel (150 grit instead of the ordered 100 grit) I called and without hesitation or the 3rd degree another wheel was sent off. No questioning of my integrity, intelligence or honor. Simply "I am sorry, we'll send the correct wheel off immediately..." The right thing was done by a neat guy. I was treated like an adult. Unbelievable in this day and age...proper...and priceless. Price, performance, responsiveness and customer service par excel-lance. 6-Stars! All my sharpening orders, albeit small shop orders, will now be with you. Promote you I will.
