Ceramic Rod Sharpener - Great for Knife MaintenanceWe have taken time to put together a series of knife sharpening videos and articles. These videos and articles will demonstrate how to sharpen your knife on Arkansas Stones, Diamond Stones, Ceramic Rods, and Tungsten Carbide V-Sharpeners. You can learn the do's and don'ts of knife sharpening, as well as different sharpening techniques like the Forward Stroke, Backward Stroke, and circular sharpening technique. We go over the pros and cons of the many different kinds of knife sharpening devices, and give advice for which sharpening device works best on which kinds of tools and knives.
