King Sharpening Stone - #1000
A sharpening stone from renowned Japanese whetstone manufacturer King is a great and affordable choice for novice and intermediate knife sharpeners. #1000 grit stone is used for general sharpening. Suitable for Japanese and German kitchen knives, razors and carpentry tools. This stone can serve as a starting stone to achieve good sharpness even with medium quality knives, used for slicing meat, seafood and vegetables.
If we ranked King stones, we would give it an "Economy Plus" mark, compared to our SharpEdge "Economy" stones. The main difference lies in the manufacturing process. King stones are not just pressed into the shape, but also "baked". This reflects in less stone wear during sharpening (meaning they will last for a longer time), but it takes slightly more experience and patience with knife sharpening, as King stone will generate less slurry than the "Economy" stones.
King stone includes a non-slip base stand for safer sharpening, preventing the stone from moving around.
