Naniwa Dressing Stone
The Dressing stone is a great little tool to clean and refresh your Whetstones during a sharpening session. As you sharpen, removed metal will build up on the stones surface. If not removed, the metal build up can slow down your sharpening process considerably. It also generates a thin layer of mud on finer types of stones that gives a nice polishing effect during the sharpening process.
The Dressing stone needs to be soaked for at least 10min before use.
MAC Ceramic Honing Rod
The White Mac honing rod has a medium 1200 grit surface that polishes your edge smooth. Similar in function to a traditional European “steel” these rods are meant to hone or gently realign your edge. Use it daily in commercial restaurant environments or once every few weeks in home environments to maintain a fine edge. This does not replace sharpening which you should still do every couple of weeks (restaurant) or every couple of months (home).
Ceramic honing rods are a much harder material than a traditional steel and have a much finer grit which obtains faster and better results.
Great for use on harder Carbon steels or powdered stainless steel.
