If you are sick to death of dull knives that make food prep a misery, get this simple and totally effective whetstone. Supremely easy to use and gives a professional result. I was able to restore a whole drawer full of cheap steel blades to near factory-sharp condition for the price of a little elbow grease. In fact, sharpening knives on a whetstone is great forearm and shoulder exercise so both the knives AND you will be better off after! My only gripe would be the non-inclusion of a flattening stone with the 1000/6000 version I bought. After one heavy session of knife grinding, the whetstone itself will need some smoothing and flattening. Included in the other two versions only. The blade angle-mount they throw in instead is disappointing as it doesn't fit every type of knife so has limited usefulness. The manufacturer should include the smoothing stone with every whetstone type. Other than that, I am totally thrilled with the ease of use and the fantastic results.
Brilliant product, needs no oil so is not a pain to clean up (water based). The vendor supplies a great instructional PDF via various methods, email and a link in the box. I've yet to master it (it's a skill you develop it seems) but with the included silicon angle guide and the in depth instructions and tips, this piece should get me exactly what I was after and last virtually a lifetime. Im very impressed with the professionalism of their service, and the product, could not recommend more highly
Plus it looks classy next to my knife rack, it's stained treated wood and stone, with a rubber insert to take out vibrations of your slightlyirregular strokes. I love it
Item was shipped and delivered accordingly - great!
Item unpacked and included easy-to-read information - great!
As first time user of whetstone for kitchen knives sharpening, I have been getting used to learning the proper sharpening technique online and will get used to using this combination whetstone. So far, this is a great whetstone for all-purpose-in-one sharpening; especially for beginners.
I received the sharpening kit for Christmas and was impressed when i opened it. Instructions were clear and included pictures plus the company also provided additional guides and tips on how to get the most out of the sharpener. As a beginner to stone sharpening, this was perfect. The results I achieved on the once dull knives are fantastic! The kitchen knives are very sharp and easy to use, which is great.
This stone was all I expected and more. It comes with a Bamboo base with a non-slip bottom and handy knife guide- if so required. I have sharpened quite a few different knives and tools on it so far, using both sides of the stone (1000 grit and 6000 grit)and I am very impressed with the results. Great value for money...highly recommend this product to other customers. The supplier gave prompt delivery and arrived in tact !!
This is awesome. After doing a quick Google search it was recommended as one of the best, for your dollar home knife sharpener for Japanese and western style knives. After seeing how cool it was to sharpen knives. I thought I'd give it a go with my home and fishing knives.
This was perfect for me. And I don't know how long these stones last. But when it does go, I'd definitely get another.
This is a great sharpening stone for beginners. Really did the trick for my old chefs knife and now its super sharp again. The angle guide really helps ensure you have an even edge all along the knife and the base keeps the stone still plus it looks great on a shelf!
