    I use waterstones and stropping.
    Should a ceramic rod be part of my set-up? If so what brands are good?

    A fine ceramic rod can be useful in a pro environment where a stone or strop are too inconvenient. At home, you may refresh the edge with a few edge trailing strokes on a medium/fine stone AND/OR a leather strop. A rod will almost weaken the edge, but is unavoidable in emergency situations.

    With typically higher HRC Japanese knives, IMHO, no, the possible exception being the situation Benuser described.
