Dynasty Series

The Kessaku Dynasty Series is a modern homage to the legacy of Japanese swordsmithing; a statement in steel of one of the most important Japanese philosophies: the pursuit of excellence. Guided by tradition, crafted with centuries-old expertise, and fine-tuned with the latest technology, these Japanese-style knives exemplify the time-tested techniques of antiquity and underscore the quality of modernity.

The Dynasty Series Professional 10" Honing Steel.

Dazzling and opulent. Astonishingly formidable with unparalleled craftsmanship.

Since the 16th century, the defining characteristics of professional cooking utensils are toughness, edge-life, edge-quality, precision, and ease of use. Kessaku utensils are hand-crafted to reflect these qualities, alongside cutting-edge, nitrogen-cooled forging techniques. Lovingly designed by our master artisans, our Dynasty Series Honing Rod features a perfectly balanced ergonomic grip for amazing comfort and safety. This stylish and beautiful honing rod is sure to draw the eye in any kitchen!

Our professional Sharpening Steel Honing Rod is used to maintain a blade's sharp edge. When viewing a knife blade under a very strong microscope its edge will look like a series of tiny points. Over time and use these points get pushed down and bent out of shape. Using our honing rod realigns and straightens that edge for smoother, safer cuts. Its seamless G10 Glass fiber resin handle makes this knife stunningly gorgeous, with an amazingly superior triple rivet construction and full-tang strength for safety, alongside its extremely well-balanced, ergonomic, and comfortable design.

Proper Honing for Breathtaking Blades. Restore the edges of your blades to their original geometry and sharpness with Kessaku’s Professional Honing Rod. It has longitudinal ridges that run along its length to ensure a smooth, firm, and safe grip, as well as a cross-guard bar between the blade and the hilt to protect your hands while honing. It also has a spiked tip to prevent slipping. Its gorgeous, handcrafted, and seamless G10 Glass fiber resin handle features triple rivet construction and Full Tang Strength. The rod is constructed from professional-grade 430 Chromium Alloy stainless steel and has a Rockwell Hardness of 89 for maximum strength and durability. Regular honing helps retain a blade’s sharpness, so you’ll need to sharpen your blades less often.

Wondrous Comfort.

Coming to Grips — with an amazing first impression. — When you grasp the handle of this knife for the first time it will feel as if you’ve always held it. Like it was made for you specifically. Its hand-crafted G10+Glass Fiber Handle is impact resistant and is nearly impervious to heat, cold, & moisture, while its seamless build ensures no dirt or debris can ever infiltrate its pristine body (which keeps it sanitary, making it perfect for busy kitchens). Our ergonomic design provides unrivaled comfort with ample knuckle clearance for superior control and agility and features triple rivet construction and amazingly superior Full Tang (which means the blade extends all the way to the end of the handle) strength for a lifetime of safe and precise use.

The Kessaku Dynasty Series 10-Inch Honing Steel includes a felt-lined knife sheath, polishing cloth, and premium gift box
