SharpEdge Sharpening Stone - #1000/#6000
We recommend our #1000/#6000 grit combination whetstone to owners of high-carbon steel kitchen knives (steels like Blue/Aogami, White/Shirogami, etc). #1000 grit is the most common general sharpening granulation (to put a new edge on a blunt knife), while #6000 grit is a fine granulation for the finishing edge and the final polish of the blade.
Due to years of experience with knife sharpening, we decided to introduce our own line of sharpening stones under our brand SharpEdge. These stones are suitable for beginners and intermediate sharpeners who need a reliable and affordable sharpening stone. There are better performing stones (less wear over time) in the market, but we find our stones offer a great price/performance ratio for those who are relatively new to knife sharpening. More experienced sharpeners will appreciate our collection of whetstones from Japanese manufacturer Naniwa.
The advantage of sharpening with a whetstone is that by using correct techniques we can achieve a remarkable sharpness of the blade, but it is necessary to learn the correct technique.
Our whetstones include a non-slip base stand for safer sharpening, preventing the stone from moving around.
