This Wusthof Combination Whetstone offers exceptional sharpening performance. One side if this has a coarse grit (3000) for sharpening moderately blunt knives. The other side has a fine grit (8000) for honing and for normal edge maintenance. This German-made whetstone is best suited for cooks who use and sharpen their knives often, as it is not for fixing nicks or sharpening very blunt knives. It should be used on high-quality knives with a minimum hardness of 58 on the Rockwell scale. This whetstone comes with a rubber tray for stability when sharpening.

About The Brand
For over 200 hundred years, the Wusthof has manufactured their knives in Solingen, Germany, known as the ‘City of Blades’. What started as a metalsmith making scissors in a cellar during the Napoleonic Wars is now an internationally recognized name for high-quality European blades. The company, which is still family-owned, produces no less than 1200 knives and kitchen accessories that vary in style and price range, but are consistent in high quality.
We love that they employ the most up-to-date procedures throughout the entire production process, consisting of:
- Measuring the blades before sharpening using lasers
- Calculating via computers the precise sharpening angle for each blade
- Sharpening the blades on a whetstone using precision robots
- Special final polishing of all blades using a special disc
If strict quality standards are not achieved, the knife is not approved for sale. That’s why Wusthof’s trident logo symbolises their three core values of passion, diligence, and perfection.Shop Wusthof
