Grunwerg 240/800 Grit Combination Whetstone

29.99

High grade whetstone ensures effective sharpening results.  Double sided: 240g suitable for sharpening dull/very blunt knives and for removing chips in the blade. 1000g is suitable for sharpening and honing of blunt knives.  We recommend that if a knife is particularly blunt then the knife should be sharpened first using the 240g, and then finished off using the 1000g. For fine honing then a 3000g stone is recommended.

Instructions: Soak the stone in clean water for about 10 minutes or until visible air bubbles have disappeared from the surface.  Hold the knife at an angle of 10-30 degrees depending on the type of knife to be sharpened and use gentle pressure bringing the blade backwards and forwards on the stone surface. Repeat on the 1000g side to give the blade a finer edge.

Note: If you are maintaining the edge of a Japanese style knife then a finer whetstone should be used, which can also be used to give a polished finish to the blade.
