The white Jende Ceramic Steel is a Mohs 9, which makes a more aggressive scratch that is ideal for kitchen knives with steels under RC 60 (most western style stainless steel knives like Wusthof, Henckel, F.Dick, Victorinox, Gunter Wilhelm, etc.). The harder ceramic leaves a little more tooth and is equivalent to about 1,200 grit.
The Jende White Ceramic Sharpening Steel has break resistant technology in the tip and handle that makes it actually usable in an active kitchen setting, minimizing the worry of the slightest breeze or hard stare causing them to break. The handle is a sturdy stainless steel with a polypropylene grip.
