CERAMIC ROD
(COARSE, FINE, FISHHOOK)
QUICK START:
Most knives can be sharpened with the fine diamond plate, the fine
ceramic rod, and the leather strop (if desired). Damaged blades or
angle changes will require the coarse diamond.
Hold the sharpener by the handle to reduce the risk of injury or place
the sharpener on a flat, stable surface. Do not rest the tool on
yourself when in use.

2 // HONING: Ceramic Rod
Rotate the red knob so that the fine
(smooth) surface and “F” on the knob
are up.
Place the side of the knife flat on the
Guide closest to the handle so the cutting
edge is on the rod and PUSH the knife
edge away and along the abrasive surface.
Repeat this step using the opposing Guide
and PULL the knife edge toward and
along the abrasive surface.
Alternate for 5 strokes per side.
Use caution when sharpening toward yourself.
3 // STROPPING: Leather Strop
25°
Hold the handle so the leather strop is
facing up. Place the side of the blade on
the stropping Guide with the cutting edge
facing down and away from the leather.
PUSH the backside of the knife up the
guide surface then onto and across the
leather strop. Repeat this step using the
opposing Guide and a PULL motion.
Perform 10 alternating strokes. Use caution
when stropping your blade.
DO NOT PUSH the edge into the strop or you will cut the surface of the leather.
SERRATED EDGES: Large or Small Ceramic Rod
Choose the appropriate size ceramic rod
for your serrations. Matching the bevel
angle of the serration, use short PUSH &
PULL strokes for each serration. Use 3-5
strokes per serration.

TIPS:
• After a blade has been sharpened once, it can be re-sharpened (touch ups)
using only the fine ceramic rod and/or leather. After a number of touch ups it
may take longer to re-sharpen. If this occurs, a few strokes on the fine
diamond will re-shape the edge.
• Only use the coarse diamond to repair chips, change the bevel angle or
sharpen tools.
• Use the coarse (ribbed) ceramic rod for blade applications requiring heavy use
such as rope cutting or bush craft. The edge created has ‘tooth’ and will
provide a robust, long lasting edge.
• Use the fine (smooth) ceramic rod and / or leather strop for blade applications
requiring a very fine edge for delicate cutting or shaving.
MAINTENANCE:
• Sharpener and ceramic rods can be cleaned with warm water and dish soap.
• Diamond plates can be removed for cleaning.
• Leather strop should be kept clean and lightly oiled when it becomes dry.
