The Wüsthof 8” Superfine Whetstone is
the ultimate solution for knife maintenance and honing, with two levels
of superfine grains housed in an attractive wooden storage box.
The whetstone combines two different sides grits for adjusting and blade maintenance -- F1000/F2000 Grit and J3000/J8000 Grit.
each use, soak the whetstone in water for 10 minutes to remove any
metal dust, and plan on using water continually throughout the process.
Place on a flat surface and hold it steady and stable. Using gentle
pressure, draw the edge of the blade over the stone at a 10˚ - 15˚ angle
from the blade’s base to tip, then repeat this motion for the other
side of the blade. Repeat using the other side of the whetstone to
refine the edge as desired. Knives that are well maintained may only
require fine honing. The whetstone is put together using a very good
bond and open-pore structure that ensures new particles are continually
exposed during use. Utilization of the stone’s entire surface while
sharpening enables the stone to wear evenly over time.
Wüsthof Superfine Whetstone is intended for use with water only, and not for
use with oil. The included wood storage box provides easy storage.
The Wüsthof 8” Superfine Whetstone carries a lifetime guarantee.
