This Kai Shun Combination Whetstone is a professional-grade sharpening tool for any quality, straight-edged knives you own. This stone features a higher grit number on both sides for professional-grade results. One side has a coarse grit (3000) for removing small nicks and sharpening blunt knives. The other side has a fine grit (6000) for honing and for normal edge maintenance. Submerge the whetstone in water for 10-15 minutes. When you will no longer see air bubbles floating to the top of the water, the stone is ready to use.
Knives sharpened with a whetstone will last longer than with a pull-through sharpener. A whetstone can also sharpen a large variety of knives and tools - for example, pocket knives, scissors, blades of a food processor, etc.
This whetstone comes with a rubber tray for stability when sharpening and is presented in a gift box.

About The Brand
Since its founding in 1908, Kai knives have held a cult status in Japan—and since their European debut in 1980, the rest of the world has caught on. Taking their inspiration from samurai blacksmithing but incorporating modern manufacturing processes, Kai has mastered the art of making extremely sharp, durable knives that feel effortless to use. All their knives are manufactured in Seki, the knife capital of Japan. As their products reached global popularity, Kai has expanded their range to include European shapes like the chef’s knife as well as ambidextrous handles, such as in the Kai Shun Premier and Kai Shun Nagare ranges.Shop Kai
