15+ inch honing Steel

Post by noobknife » Mon Nov 06, 2017 12:48 pm

I have some 12 inch chef knives made of x50crmov so they are a low grade enough metal to benefit from using a steel.

So far the largest rods I've found online are 14 inches plus handle. Does anyone know of one that's 15 inches or bigger?

Not off the top of my head, try to Google it. I am sure there are some out there you may just have to look a bit harder. Is there a reason the the 14inch won't work for a 12 inch knife? Before getting into j knives I would hone a 9inch henkles on a 10inch rod and it worked fine.

I've never see one over 14", I'd be very surprised if you will find one longer.
