KitchenIQ Oval Diamond Sharpening Rod
- Online Only
Designed for straight-edge knives, this oval-shaped rod features an interrupted diamond-grit surface, which speeds the sharpening process by collecting and holding the metal filings that ordinarily build up during the sharpening process.

- Use & Care
- Use with straight-edged knives only; not for use with serrated blades.
- Steel length should measure at least as long as the knife being honed.
- To properly hone the knife, hold it at the appropriate-degree angle and draw the blade across the steel. Never stroke the same side of blade more than once in succession. Always do an equal number of strokes on each side to ensure the sharpest edge possible
- Only sharpen on the oval surface, not the edges of the sharpening rod.
- Clean sharpening rod after use.
- Scrub in warm water with a kitchen cleansing powder and a mild brush.
- Dry thoroughly before storing.
