Keeping your knives sharp can be a challenge but with this sharpening stone kit you will easily keep your edges in top form. The system starts off with a bamboo base with a rubber insert. This helps keep your stones in place so they don’t move around during sharpening.

Sharpening a knife with a whetstone can be intimidating, but it is not as hard as you think. What matters the most is keeping a consistent sharpening angle. This set includes an angle guide to help you keep the proper angle for your particular knife.

Two sharpening stones are included, each has two different faces that provide a different grit level. Grit is how coarse the sharpening stone is. The lower the grit number, the coarser it is. These stones come with 400, 1000, 3000, and 8000 grit options.

The 400 grit is the coarsest. This is the grit to use on heavily damaged or extremely dull edges. It will remove the most material in the quickest amount of time. Using the coarsest grit first allows for less time spent on the finer grits. But don’t automatically go to the 400 grit if your knife is only slightly dull.

The 1000 grit is a middle of road coarseness. This grit is used on most knives and knives that are not as high a quality or do not need an extremely fine edge. You might start or end with this grit depending on how sharp you need your blade to be.

The 3000 grit stone is where you start to get into higher end kitchen knives. The ultra-fine edges of some Japanese blades and other top-shelf knives require this very fine grit to refine and polish the edge. This can be considered one of the finishing stones to use on your knife.

The 8000 grit stone is one of the last stones to use on your edge. This stone rounds out the sharpening process before the stropping step and should not be used on heavily damaged blades. The coarseness is too fine to quickly remove material and repair chips or other damage in blades.

A flattening stone and a releveling stone are included to grind your stones down to a proper flat plane. This helps with consistency and maintaining your stones.

A flat leather strop is included for the last or next-to-last sharpening. This is used to smooth the edge further.

This set also includes a buffing compound, called the green compound. This will be applied to the non-flat leather strop and is used to polish the edge after sharpening. This final step in the process brings the edge to completion.

To prepare any of your stones for use, you should let them sit for 15 to 20 minutes submerged in water. This gets the air out of the stone. Once the stone is properly prepared, select the correct grit for the knife you want to sharpen and set the stone in bamboo and rubber holder.

While using the angle guide, begin to sharpen the knife. If you are sharpening a Japanese style blade you should use a 15 degree angle and a 20 degree angle for Western style blades. Once you have finished sharpening your knife, level the sharpening stone with the leveling stone.

After this is done, clean the stone by washing it with water and letting it dry in a ventilated area before storage.
