You can buy it from EdgePro Inc., too. I'm not positive what shipping costs but it's always been very reasonable on all my orders. I really like the 8" fine with the blue plastic sleeve the best. It's super compact when in the sleeve and the sleeve protects it.

I have been using Idahone products for years as I think they are far superior to Lansky, Messermeister and many of the other ceramics on the market.  I have struggled to find some things from them too but it seems they have finally opened on online store and carry their whole product line.  They are at www.idahone.com and I also found them on ebay at http://www.ebay.com/sch/idahoners/m.html?item=161908527287&hash=item25b28010b7:g:EdwAAOSwxN5WYhJ7&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2562

I get that they are smallish and family run, but so glad we can finally get their stuff easilly.  Hope that helps.

Sometimes just prior to honing with a ceramic rod, I hone the edge using a german-made steel purchased in the middle 1970s and that combination works great for me on all of my knives: Sabatiers, Henckels, and Forschners - both carbon steel and stainless.  (EDIT) The german steel roughs up the edge a bit (EDIT) which the ceramic rod can help to realign a bit.
