Product Info

To keep your knives sharp, take them to a whetstone. The open pore structure of the Wusthof whetstone means that new particles are constantly exposed during sharpening, creating an even better edge on your knives. With two sides, you can pre-sharpen on the coarse side of the stone, and hone to a fine edge on the fine side.

Directions to Sharpening:

  • Immerse the stone for 5 - 10 minutes in water before each use. Water becomes the lubricant, ensuring particles are carried away from the blade
  • Always place the stone on a flat, slip-resistant surface. Use the entire surface of the stone when sharpening. This will ensure even wear of the stone over time
  • Pull the edge of the blade in an angle of 15 - 20° across the stone from the heel of the blade to its very tip. Use gentle pressure
  • Repeat this same procedure on the other side of the edge. Use this same procedure on both sides of the stone, using the coarse side first
  • The coarse grain is suitable for removing small flaws and dents, and to prepare the edge for honing
  • The fine grain is used to hone the edge to the desired sharpness

Specifications

  • Dimensions: L 20cm x W 6cm x H 3cm
  • Grit on whetstones is measured by two systems, the German and the Japanese. F400/1000 means the same thing as J1000/3000 (both use the lower number to signify the coarser grit)

A kitchen must-have

Not having used a whetstone before I can't comment on this product relative to any other whetstone. There is clearly an art to using one and I would have liked a more comprehensive instruction manual supplied with the product. What I do like however is the Wusthof quality-feel and they way my knives felt after using it - they're most certainly sharper! A bit of a drawback is the lack of a durable Read more

Affordable - Does the job

4 Stars because it's not as long or as wide as some others on the market. I get the feeling the stone is also a bit softer so more prone to wear.

That said, I've revived a few knives with this stone and they are sharper than when they came out of the box. No question about it.

If your knife is badly damaged you'll need a coarser stone to cut down on the time needed t Read more

The whetstone was easy to use after looking up some videos on how to use it. Our knives have been the sharpest since first buying them.

You need one of these if you like sharp knives!

I should've bought one of these years ago! I was expecting it to be difficult to use and require immense patience. I was wrong! It is both simple to use and surprisingly quick. All you need is a moderately steady hand so that you can keep the blade angle fairly constant. I've used lots of the "easy" sharpeners in the past and have been disappointed by all of them. I have not been disappointed by t Read more
