Double-sided sharpening stone with grains 1000 and 3000.
The ideal whetstone for sharpening your kitchen knives.
Thanks to its 2 in 1 design, this whetstone is truly functional and effective. It can be used for both Japanese and Western types of kitchen knives. Let us add that it comes with a black silicone stand that serves to hold the stone and thus guarantee a safe and stable usage. How often this whetstone should be used is something that varies depending on the conditions of your kitchen knives.
This side of the whetstone is recommended for a regular usage that helps to maintain a good cutting performance without letting the blade become blunt. Using this side in a regular basis prevents you from having to use a stone with more abrasive grains (which remove more material from the edge's blade). If you were to have only one sharpening stone, it would have to be a stone with this type of grit, because it enables a subtle sharpening that does not sand the steel of the blade.
The grains of this side are perfect for finishing the edge of the blade. Given that the grains are fine, they refine the edge of the blade so that it can acquire a remarkable sharpness. This side could also serve as the intermediate grit for kitchen knives that have ultra hard blades that withstand and require sharpening with ultra-fine grains.
It needs to be soaked in water 15 minutes before usage. Next, you need to place the blade's edge against the stone's surface leaving a space equivalent to a coin in between the blade's body and the stone. Then, you start doing sway movements across the whetstone's surface applying just a light pressure. Don't forget that to get complete results, you need to do this on both sides of the blade.
