Knives sharpening stones



 
Prior to using the wet stone it should be completely soaked in water for about 5 to 10 minutes. Please make sure that the stone is always slightly wet during the sharpening process.

When sharpening single-edged knives the ground side should be treated first. Make sure that you maintain the original angle given by the manufacturer. If at all possible apply an angle of 45° (to achieve the best possible surface). Grind towards the edge using pressure; release the pressure on the way back. Apply as often as necessary to achieve the desired degree of sharpness. Once finished on this side, turn the blade over and start on the other side but only approx. 1/10th as often as before.
 
Double-edged knives need the same treatment but with an angle of 15°. Both sides need to be ground evenly to restore the symmetrically ground edge.

Information:
Ceramic flattening resurfacer Block (grit 100) for sharpening whetstone (synthetic or natural)
To get good results when sharpening chisels and plane blades, the surfaces of your sharpening stones need to be completely flat. Because waterstones are relatively soft and wear quickly, they must be regularly trued, a task best accomplished using this special truing block. It is made of open bonded hard ceramic to guarantee a fast cutting effect. To use, simply rub the well-soaked surface of the block by performing an elliptical motion.
