“Doesn’t matter how good your knives are – if they’re blunt, they’re blunt”
The Combination Sharpening Stone is a great all-round Japanese whetstone for kitchen knives, chisels, planes etc. Somewhere around #1000 and #2000 is the perfect grade for regular kitchen knife sharpening so use the #1000 (red ochre) for general use, and finish off with the #3000 (yellowish brown). Then soak for five minutes before use and splash with water during use to keep wet. Place upon a towel so the stone doesn’t move about.
