Why You May Need a Sharpening Stone?
A knife is arguably the most important tool in the kitchen, but it’s essential that the blade is sharp. When blunt, you have less control and are more likely to see the knife slide off the food, thereby making cooking a more hazardous process.
When kitchen knives or other cutting tools like scissors are losing their edge and shine, using a waterstone is the best way to keep your knife in top condition. Keeping cutting tools sharp is not just essential for efficient cuts, but for your safety as well.
Having a knife sharpening stone in your kitchen cabinet will not just help you maintain the blade sharp, but it will hone and polish it too.
Why Do Would You Want to Flatten A Whetstone?
Whetstones become very uneven over time, and this can cause a very inconsistent sharpening. Not only will the sharpening be inconsistent, but it can even damage the knife. Even the most skilled sharpeners cannot achieve good results with a cupped or uneven surface on a whetstone.
With this flattening stone, you can very quickly resurface hollowed sharpening stones so that they are flat and true again. You do this by moving the flattening stone quickly back and forth accross the surface of the water stone.
400 Grit: Coarse stones

1000 Grit: Medium-grade stones

3000/8000 Grit: Finishing stones
Polishing, grinding surface. Used in back-grinding of single-beveled blades. Razor sharp, provide extra fine polish on the blade, achieve finely mirror finished edge.
How to Sharpen Your Knives With a Whetstone
- STEP 1 Submerge the whetstone in water for about 15 to 20 minutes to soak. When there are no more little air bubbles appearing, the stone has absorbed the optimum amount of water.
- STEP 2 Place the whetstone on a cutting board or countertop, with the coarse grit face up. Place nonslip rubber bases or bamboo stone holder underneath the stone to help keep it from sliding.
- STEP 3 With your knife at a 15-25 degree angle, slowly draw the knife down and across the stone in a smooth motion, starting at the heel and finishing at the tip.
- STEP 4 Repeat this action 5 times. You may need to repeat this motion additional times, depending on the dullness of the knife.
- STEP 5 Flip the knife the other side and sharpen the reverse side using the same motion. You should sharpen this side the same number of times as the other side for consistency.
- STEP 6 Return the knife to the original side, but this time draw the knife from the tip to the heel. Repeat this motion 5 times. Flip to the reverse side, and sharpen from tip to heel five times.
- STEP 7 Turn your sharpening stone over to the fine side and repeat steps 1-6. If stone starts to feel too dry, add more water.
- STEP 8 To finish, pull the blade twice at an angle to the cutting edge to remove the last burrs. Your knife should now be really sharp. Rinse off the whetstone and clean off the grinding residue.
