"Home Sharpener v2" Sharpening Set
The "Home Sharpener v2" sharpening set 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. The 2 differences between our "Home Sharpener" set are in the grit of the fine combination stone (#2000/5000 vs #3000/8000), and that the v2 does not include a Flattening stone. The #240 grit side can be used as a flattening stone if we do not use it for sharpening.
This set 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 Angle 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 #2000 grit stone and repeat the process. Finally, the #5000 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.
