Japanese Whet/Water Stones
As the popularity of Japanese knives increases in the U.S., so does the use of Japanese sharpeners. Whet/Water stones have been the preferred choice for sharpening Japanese tools for thousands of years. Through the latest technology, man-made stones such as these produce excellent edges without the risk of impurities or inconsistencies in the stone which would otherwise cause irregular edges. With just a few weeks of practice these stones will help you put a hair-shaving edge on your knife. Soak in water for 2-3 minutes before using. To maintain the flat shape of your stone we recommend purchasing a stone fixer.
