Product Info

If you keep your knives in good condition, and want an even sharper edge, the Super Fine whetstone features a fine grit and a super fine side.

If you hone and sharpen your knives often, the chances are that the edge is good. But you want an even sharper edge? Wusthof can do that. With a fine and super fine side, you get what you asked for.

Directions to Sharpening:

Immerse the stone 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, dents, etc. and to prepare the edge for honing.

The fine grain is used to hone the edge to the desired sharpness. 

Specifications

Grit on whetstones is measured by two systems, the European (German) and the Japanese. F400/1000 means the same thing as J1000/3000 (both use the lower number to signify the coarser grit). Coarse grit gets the obvious nicks and imperfections in the blade out, while the finer grit hones the knife to a razor edge.

Serious Equipment

This is a serious piece of equipment that is easier to use than you might think. Much better to use for sharpening blades than a knife iron, one is able to achieve a beautifully sharp edge without the risk of damage.

The choice of grit means you can repair a damaged blade or simply hone a blade needing sharpening.

It does a very good job on nice to good knives. Don't have any excellent knives. The 3000 side cuts quickly, the 8000 side finishes very well. My chefs knife, from dullish to shaving in 10 minutes... before breakfast...

To note for sharpening afficionados... the 3000 side feels more coarse than my other stone 800... the J8000 side is quite a bit smoother than the stone 800, which is Read more

Using this stone only makes sense if you also have a medium stone of about J1000 grit to actually sharpen and shape the edge first, but if you have a medium stone and you know what you are doing the J8000 will get the edge to a near mirror finish and razor-sharpness.

I'd been using a coarser grain whetstone for a while, and getting pretty good results, but this was a game changer - Brought my knives to razor sharpness.

I agree with the previous comments that if you want to remove serious chips or restore a very blunt edge you will need a coarser stone. You could do it with this one's 3000 side but it's going to take much longer. For blades that are in a reasonable state this stone is a great tool for periodic sharpening. I'm new to freehand sharpening but I managed to get a dull knife with some small chips in th Read more
