    I totally know what you mean, the Mac white ceramics had a fine stone like texture that was still much less aggressive than a diamond rod, those deffinetly removed metal and screwed up some knives. I think I have an idea for a video to show you what i'm talking about, to show how the black ceramic is maybe not as smooth as the f.dick polished stainless hones, but not anywhere near 2k in finish. Ill figure it out tonight.

    Maybe it is black so you don't see all the swarf. To compare: the usual IKEA white ceramic rod looks like a pencil lead in no time.
