Don't hone but sharpen your knives with Ceramic Steel! 

In 20 years of knife making, New West KnifeWorks has seen, heard, and tried almost every way possible to sharpen our stuff.  Sharpening rods should be your first line of defense against edge deterioration. Depending on the grade and grit of your honing rod one can easily resurrect your edges on tools and knives. That is why we offer and highly suggest the One-Two Combo of a Coarse and Fine Ceramic or Ruby Steel honing rod.  THIS IS NOT THE METAL HONING ROD THAT WILL HELP KEEP A SHARP KNIFE SHARP.  THIS IS A KNIFE SHARPENER THAT WILL GRIND AWAY METAL AND RE-SHARPEN YOUR KNIFE.

Fine Grit Sharpening Rod:
If you are only going to get one ceramic sharpener start with this.  It can get anything but a butter knife dull knife shaving sharp.  (Actually it will even get a butter knife dull knife sharp but it takes a longtime.)  Ceramic is much harder than steel and the 1200 grit courseness efficiently removes material and restores a very fine edge.
