The only way to sharpen your Japanese Knife. Experience the satisfaction and joy in the personal maintenance and care of your Japanese Knives.
Togi Stone is a set of three Whetstones used to sharpen Japanese Knives. The word ‘whet’ translates ‘to sharpen’ and the stone constitutes a compressed ceramic block. The stones are divided across three categories rough 100-250 grit, medium 800-1000 grit and fine 5000-6000 grit finishing stone. The concept of different grades or levels of coarseness is analogous to a carpenter having different grades of sandpaper at their disposal.
Prior to sharpening the stones are submerged in water for approximately 15 minutes, with the exception of the fine grit finishing stone. The subsequent movement of the blade upon the stone produces a slurry like wet paste that is the lubricant required to sharpen your knife. Detailed instructions including illustrations are provided with the Whetstones for your convenience.
The medium stone, 800-1000 is the most common used stone to maintain a consistent and beautiful sharp edge.
