2-step ceramic knife sharpener. Features ceramic rods; dark ceramic for coarse and white for fine, to care for and maintain blades. The two stages allow for the proper angle every time, by having two stationary ceramic rods molded into the base. The 2-Step Sharpener also has overmolded grips. The overmolding process allows the user to have a safe, comfortable and secure grip while sharpening. The unit has a lanyard hole which allows for easy attachment to cord or string.
