Product Description

Despite the name, sharpening steels don't actually sharpen knives--unless they're diamond steels. Instead, they perform the vital task of realigning, or resetting, edges, which bend when contacting a cutting surface or other hard object. Because this ceramic replacement rod for the G45 sharpener is made of harder-than-steel ceramic, it performs better and quicker than most steels. Using Global's sharpening rod often--before each time a knife is employed is ideal--prevents a blade from becoming dull and prolongs intervals between professional sharpenings, or the need of a whetstone or other true sharpening device. The rule is that a realigning tool should be at least as long as the knife blade being drawn across it, making the 9-1/2-inch replacement sharpening rod long enough for most household knives. --Fred Brack

Thought I would have to replace my Global sharpner when dropped it and the ceramic rod broke off. Sure happy to learn that I cold replace the ceramic part at a fraction of replacing the whole thing
