King Super Finish Sharpening Stone - #6000
A sharpening stone from renowned Japanese whetstone manufacturer King is a great and affordable choice for novice and intermediate knife sharpeners. The #6000 grit stone is suitable for Japanese and German kitchen knives, razors and carpentry tools. We use it for fine sharpening and removing the burr. For the next step we either recommend using the leather strop to give the blade the final polish, or use the stone as a mid-step between #1000 and #8000 grit.
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 Super Finish stone is packed without the base, so we recommend placing it on a stone holder during sharpening.
