A whetstone is an essential item to keep your knives sharp. Though it is sometimes mistaken as a reference to the water often used to lubricate such stones, the word "whetstone" is a compound word formed with the word "whet", which means to sharpen a blade.

The process of using a sharpening stone is called stoning.

For hundreds of years, the people of Japan have sharpened knives using natural stones lubricated with water. The geology of Japan has provided a type of stone which consists of fine silicate particles perfect for honing knife edges.

Our stone is of a composite construction, but the essence remains, ensuring a beautiful and sharp finish every time.

1000 grit stone -Traditionally used as the second step in the sharpening process or to refine the bevel, this is considered the medium or middle step in the sharpening process - the all rounder.

Use with all of our Japanese knives.
