The secret of world famous sharpness and edge retention of Japanese blades is a result of the quality of the steel, and the knowledge of blade processing. Though these are perfect conditions, even the best blades must be cared for and, from time to time, need resharpening. For that, the original Japanese whetstones of the manufacturer Masahiro work perfectly. The whetstones consist of a water soluble matrix. By soaking the stone prior to use, the sharpening particles become exposed on the surface, providing maximum sharpening performance. The use of Japanese whetstones requires a bit of practice, but will provide a more than satisfying result. Length: 7". Width: 2". Thickness: ¾". This model is a medium stone (1000 grit), perfect for fine honing and finishing of high quality knives.
