I've been watching a video from JKI that didn't recommend using honing steel for Japanese knives. I know it makes a lot of sense to me why not to use the steel but how about ceramic rods though? I have found a company that sells 8000 grit ceramic honing rod? I am curious how does it compare to 8000 stone that I can use for honing? Is there any difference or am I just splitting the hair here. For me it is mainly convince factor, using rod vs taking the stone out. Any suggestions?
