    Anyone know of a good Oval shaped honing rod?

    Title pretty much sums it up.

    Searching for a flat/oval sharpening steel. Don't really want ceramic. Wooden handles are a plus, also cheaper is better

    Thanks!

    F. Dick makes some nice rods. I have the smooth Dick Polish which is oval-shaped but I woudn't call it a "sharpening" rod.

    Red handled F.Dick sapphire is the best IMHO, I have one I keep at work and one at home.

    I also just bought the same "Dick Polish" hone that TK mentioned. None of the F.Dick rods are cheap, but the quality is really outstanding. Hand American makes a smooth steel hone with a wood handle that's about 1/2 the price, but it's not oval.

    What knives will you be using it on? Some j-knives and powered super steel blades are as hard or harder than a steel hone. Do you want somethings perfectly smooth / polished just for alignment or do you want something textured?

    Yeah, that one was served up, just waiting for someone to crank it out of the park.
