Whetstone Knife Sharpener
You can easily master the culinary arts if you have the right tools, and the most essential of them is a whetstone knife sharpener. Our sharpening stone makes it so much easier to get the razor-sharp quality you need in all of your kitchen knives.
Sharpening Whetstone 1000/6000 features
When you purchase the KNIVES ETCETERA™ Sharpening Whetstone then you receive the following:
With this whetstone cutlery sharpening stone, you get two grit variations. When are you going to need them? Well, the coarse grit is 1000-grit, and it can get that dull blade back to its sharpened point quickly. There's also a 6000-grit side, which smooths and polishes your sharpened knife. You need that to finish the process and get rid of any metal shavings. Dual grit sharpening is an excellent choice for most people, and whetstone knife sharpening is a great thing to master. We know how tough it can be, but you just have to practice! Our dual-grit whetstone knife sharpener is thin and easy to handle. On top of that, it has the features that you know and love. You can use it on all the knives in your home, though it doesn't work well for serrated knives.
Every water stone needs to have a base that you hold onto. That way, you're not rubbing away the skin on your hands. That's no fun! The sharpening whetstone offers a bamboo base, so it's going to look amazing in the kitchen. You don't even need to keep it in the drawer. Let it sit out so that you always remember to use your water stone! You're going to like the base features some rubber padding to help it stay in place. That way, it's not going to move around all the time when you're not using it. Sharpening kitchen knives is much easier with the added silicone base. This sits right between the base and water stone to keep the unit stable while you're sharpening your knives!
Grit sharpening is the best way to go here, but we also included an angled guider to help you hold your knives at the right angle. That way, you can apply the right amount of pressure when sharpening your tools. It's also safer, so beginners can use the water stone easily!
How to Use the Whetstone Knife Sharpener
Using a whetstone knife sharpener can be a little scary at first because you don't want to cut yourself. Let's find out just how to use your whetstone knife sharpener!
The first thing you should do is get it out of the drawer and inspect it. Make sure that both sides are ready to go. Now, you should gather all of your knives, such as pocket knives and others. You want the knives sharp as can be, so this next step is important!
Soak the stone in water for a few minutes. A sharpen-up whetstone needs to be wet for it to work correctly! Place the knife at an angle so that the edge is on the sharpening stones. Move the edge back and forth from one end of the Japanese natural whetstone to the other.
You should stop periodically to check the edge and make sure it is sharp. The fine side is used for honing the blades while the other side can be used to polish it up and make it shine again.
Sharpen the edge of your cutting tools frequently so that they are always sharp. It's ideal to do this all at once, but you may find that you need to sharpen a few cutting tools more often because you use them more.
Keeping your knives sharp is an essential element of effective knife care and you can't go wrong with a sharpening whetstone. We hope that you enjoy your whetstone knife sharpener set.
Ordered a big chopper and it came on time, well packaged and looks great
It would be nice if there were instructions. Being new to using a sharpening stone I would have appreciated some guidance with the product.

Knives Et Cetera
I used the sharpener and never could get the edge on the knife I wanted. I went back to my old diamond edged sharpener 600 grit. Got the knives sharp. I then tried to put better edge on with the whetstone. The knife was duller after I used the whetstone. It went from shaving hair to not shaving hair
Not a good sharpener
It does wonders for dull knives
Have now used to sharpen a variety of knives and works well once you get the hang of moving the blade smoothly across the stone. Instruction video really useful.
I’m 84 years old and haven’t used a whetstone for many years. I haven’t gotten the knives to the “razor” edge yet, but still trying to get to that point!
It looks very well presented, and of very high quality, I haven’t actually used it yet as next Sunday is the first time we will be using the knifes which I am very pleased with.
It’s a great sharpener that works well and looks even nicer.
I have used different types of sharpeners and have never been happy. This one actually works and is easy to use and doesn’t cost much recommended without reservations
