I would like to buy a hone for a chef’s knife with a Rockwell hardness of 61 to 63. Could you please provide a recommendation for what I might purchase.



Thanks for your help.



Michael

Hi Michael,

Most stones will work for knives in that hardness range.

The Shapton Glass stone set we sell here would be good for most knives including yours:

Is he looking for a stone, or like an Idahone ceramic rod?

I never know since the term "hone" gets used for stones and rods by customers. In this case I was wrong. He wanted a rod.

So, for a good rod try the Idahone:

I like these because they are pretty fine, gentle on the edges and still remove a small bit of material each time you use it. Hard and smooth is best for higher hardness knives.

I have a Tojiro dp. Although its not quite as hard as your blade, ive gotten what seems to be great results from the Idahone rod- if used correctly, of course.
