Pros: Durability, Ease of Use, Effectiveness, Overall Quality
A Quality Product at an Attractive Price
I bought eight ceramic rods from which I made three knife sharpeners. Two of the rods were purposely broken in half to make two devices 4 1/4 tall. Two more rods were used full length for a third sharpener. One rod shattered before I discovered they must be notched first before breaking. All are mounted in wooden blocks at 20 degrees each to produce the proper 40 degree included sharpening angles. Ceramic rods are hard and shatter easily, but work well for this purpose if well supported. Overall, I'm very happy with my purchase and would order from this company again.
