Many people see whetstones and think it's far too difficult to do at home - my goodness it takes a five-year education in ancient Japan to even look at one, doesn't it? Joking aside, it really isn’t that hard. In fact, it's quite easy to get good results yourself, although it really is an art that can be mastered. If you know how to do it, you can keep your knives in a much better condition. There are plenty of good tutorials on YouTube on how to do this. We offer good quality whetstones with grits ranging from 24 grit (for sharpening the grindstone) to 13,000 grit (for an incredibly well-polished surface). Grit is the term for the number of grains per cubic centimetre. For really worn knives you should use stones between 120 and 240 grit, for normal wear stones between 700 and 1,200 are sufficient, and for a good finish we recommend a stone between 3,000 and 8,000.
