"Home Sharpener" Sharpening Set
Home Sharpener sharpening set should be a part of every kitchen. It includes all the tools needed to properly sharpen our knives (Japanese or not). This set is suitable for both sharpening rookies and as well as those with prior sharpening experience.
It includes two combination sharpening stones. The coarse #240 grit should only be used on damaged knives, or for really blunt edges. Most often we start our sharpening process on the #800 grit stone, which is used for general sharpening. Don't forget to attach the Guide clip on the blade, so it will keep the same angle (approx at 16°) during sharpening. Once we achieve a good burr across the whole length of the blade, we proceed to the #3000 grit stone and repeat the process. Finally, the #8000 grit will give us that extra polish and super sharp edge. We finalize our sharpening process with the Leather strop, which will remove any remnants of the burr and give us the desired smooth, fine sharpness.
Home Sharpener set also includes a flattening stone. As sharpening stones get worn unequally and sooner-or-later become hollow, therefore we use flattening stone to flatten them out.
