Full Whetstone Set 1000/6000
I believe that there is always something new to learn, in fact, that is one of the three reasons that I chose to become a chef, that my education is never over.Anne Burrell
As different as the WASABI knife collections and their individual models are, as different are the requirements for sharpening the knives. In addition to different sharpening steels, there is also the sharpening stone.
It is particularly suitable for sharpening Japanese knives, as these models have particularly hard blades due to their manufacture. The Whetstone has two layers - one with a coarse grain (1000) for pre-grinding and one with a very fine grain (6000) for polishing. Before use the Whetstone is soaked for 5 to 10 minutes. The silicone anti-slip tray in combination with the bamboo base, in which the stone is placed during grinding, prevents water from getting onto the worktop and also provides a secure footing.
For easy use this Whetstone set comes with an angle guide, so not experienced users can maintain a stable and correct angle. With its compact size it fits perfectly in the kitchen drawer, where it is protected from dust and crumbs.
In combination with the leather strop you can get a razor sharp knife like a true Japanese Master. For detailed sharpening instructions look here.
I had two separate whetstones (1000+8000) for many years, until they got too uneven and worn. I bought them together for 200 dollars (only the stones). Although I was unsure if a cheaper stone would perform as well as my old ones, I wanted to give it a shot just to know. And I'm so glad I tried it! The set is awesome. I see no difference, except that this set also has a rubber base which is very helpful. I have not used the sharpening guide since I am already skilled. Thank you for the top quality.
Very high quality. Immediately tried to sharpen my knives. The stone is great. Knives can cut paper. I advise you to try it. Sharpening on this stone a pleasure.
Thank you! It arrived with no problem.
