Realign and Sharpen your Knife's Edge

The key to a knife that remains just as sharp as when you took it out of the box, is sharpness and alignment. When you use a knife every day, its edge gets dull and bent out of shape.

Our Rod:

◘ Can be used to push the edge back to the centre and straighten it while not shaving off huge amount of steel. Stainless steel knives usually want honing after every 2-4 uses and our rod makes this process fast & effortless.

◘ Not only hones, but also sharpens your knife's edge. After each use you will see thin black stripes on your white rod - these are pieces of steel from your knife's edge. This process helps keep the edge sharp for longer.

Hone your knife regularly with Green Elephant Ceramic Rod, and we guarantee that you need to sharpen your knife only once every 1-2 years.

"Very nice and works great. Seems to sharpen faster and better than our other sharpeners. The only complaint that I have is that my husband has my knives so sharp I'm concerned I may lose a finger. LOL I'll have to learn better knife safety now."

- Sandy from Big Rock, TN

Effortless and Safe Sharpening

"This is lightweight kitchen tool, fitted with a unique rubber end to protect it.

It replaced my not-quite-ancient diamond dust metal rod. The Green Elephant rod is easy to use: assuming the correct angle while drawing the knife is a snap because of the low weight.

My kitchen knives, as well as my Buck hunting/utility knife and my penknife are sharper than I can ever remember."

- Robert from Miami, FL

Exclusive Shock Absorbing Feature for Maximum Durability

✓ Our unique vibration absorbent design will protect your knife from falling damage and will also keep it from shattering when dropped. The silicon seal between the handle and ceramic together with the plastic end cap are designed to absorb vibrational waves and keep your rod safe.

◘ Inside the rod, we have placed specially engineered accessories that absorb 70% of the vibrational waves, thus increasing rapidly the rod’s durability.

◘ Due to the shock absorbing technology, our ceramic sharpening rod is far from fragile. We even put it to the test and dropped it from 3 feet. The result?
A survival rate of a whopping 80%. Regular ceramic rods, shatter nearly EVERY time when dropped from 3 feet.

Lightweight Design & Ergonomic Handle - An Extremely Easy To Use Rod

"Very well made ceramic sharpening rod, with an extremely fine texture that does a fantastic job keeping knives razor sharp. I've been using it on my collection of Japanese knives with great results. As a home cook I have never developed the technique to confidently use wet stones for sharpening and so find it easier to control the angle and pressure with ceramic sharpening rods instead. After using a coarser rod for sharpening, I use this 1500 grit model to finish the job beautifully.."

- David from Fort Lauderdale, FL

    Case study: 100 Green Elephant ceramic sharpening rods were dropped from 3 feet to tile ground which lead to an amazing “survival rate” of 80%.

  • Caution

    Try not to drop the rod
    Do not use on serrated side of blade
    Do not use on ceramic blades

    Do not bend the ceramic rod – it might break the magic formula inside that keeps the rod from shattering when dropped.

Background: Why do we make these Rods?

- Because we are food enthusiasts who like to solve problems!

After browsing through all the honing steel listings in Amazon and reading countless reviews, we saw the common problem. Ceramic rods break so easily when dropped and it is impossible to sharpen your knives with just pieces of the rod.

Upon hearing the same concerns from other food enthusiasts in forums as well as from professional sharpening services, we found a way to bring you this Ceramic Rod with a unique ability to outlive and outperform its regular counterparts

The positive feedback we received for our sharpening rod was so overwhelming that gave us all the more reason to be proud of our achievement. Furthermore, it also allows us to be bold in our statements about our product’s quality.
