High quality honing rod

I'm a professional chef that owns and uses expensive knives daily, this rod compliments some of my japanese knives and works beautifully, it has two surfaces one smooth for light daily honing and one with the traditional grooves for weekly maintenance

Shun Honing Steel

I really like the honing steel, it’s of great quality like the Shun knives. However, it will require practice for me to keep the knife at the proper angle.

The item was sent back to seller. Tracking said it was unable to be delivered because of no forwarding address. A forwarding address was available. I sent message through eBay messaging to seller May 17 with new address and offered to pay for shipping. Have not heard back from seller. Please help me with this as I really want the sharpening steel.
