Why do you need a new dip stick? Do you have a 2018 or newer ? If so, you don't need a new dip stick. You just need to read the procedure on how to check the oil level. It is really screwy. If you don't follow the procedure, you won't see any oil on the dip stick.

There is nothing wrong with your dipstick, you’re simply not following the correct new procedure for checking oil level. Honda believing that their procedure to establish an Apple Car Play is a model of sheer genius, have gone one step further with the oil level check procedure.

Tide tables should be consulted. Your present diptstick has been calibrated to be accurate during the peak high of Spring Tides. Oil level checks should be timed to coincide with when the Sun, Moon, and Earth are in perfect alignment, the level of resulting high tide in your sump can then be easily measured with your OEM dipstick.
