Diamond Honing Rod

dcole | Dec 29, 2012 08:47 AM

I received an Edgeware Diamond Honing Steel as a Christmas present, and have used it once. It seems much more aggressive that a standard honing rod. I believe this is supposed sharpen and hone at the same time.

My questions is - is this too abrasive to use as a honing rod? Will this take too much metal off my knives over time? Should I use this every so often and a normal steel daily or can I use the diamond rod daily?

I mostly use victorinox and Wusthof knives - softer steel.
