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. Choose between a 10" and 12" length to fit your knives. The ABS handle is generous and sturdy for a safe, comfortable grip.

10" Ceramic Steel is 14-1/2" Overall Length

12" Ceramic Steel is 17-1/2" 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.

Received my Sharpening System today,(Norton IM83) and I've got to tell you that I am excited about using this product. I've been in the meat cutting business for 45 years, and as you can imagine, I've used allot of different types and styles of sharpening equipment. I have had 3 Norton Multi-Oil Stone units in my lifetime, and then I see this IM83 and I think that this is what I need to carry with me when and wherever I go. I just LOVE this little box full of expertise equipment to keep me sharp and at a razors edge. Thank you for the service, it was fast and easy, and I received it within 3 days of ordering. I know knives and how they work, and I can't wait to start putting that edge on my "other" knives I own.
