Synthetic whetstone sharpeners have become increasingly popular due to their extremely consistent grit and affordable price. Ensures effective sharpening results, compact with a double-sided sharpening design and equipped with a silica gel slip-resistant base, guaranteeing safe sharpening with an exceptional edge.
- Immerse the stone for 5 – 10 minutes in water before each use. Water becomes the lubricant, ensuring particles are carried away from the blade
- Always place the stone on a flat, slip-resistant surface. Use the entire surface of the stone when sharpening. This will ensure even wear of the stone over time
- Pull the edge of the blade at an angle of 12 – 15° across the stone from the heel of the blade to its very tip. Use gentle pressure
- Repeat this same procedure on the other side of the edge. Use this same procedure on both sides of the stone, using the coarse side first
- The coarse grain is suitable for removing small flaws and dents, and to prepare the edge for honing
- The fine grain is used to hone the edge to the desired sharpness
Grit on whetstones is measured by two systems, the German and the Japanese. F400/1000 means the same thing as J1000/3000 (both use the lower number to signify the coarser grit)
180/600, 240/1000, 600/2000, 1000/3000, 1000/6000, 2000/5000, 3000/8000
