Knife sharpening & maintenance
Affordable sharpening stone sets for sharpening enthusiasts
If you are looking to sharpen your knives on whetstones you will almost always need multiple stones. Depending on how blunt the knife is and how sharp you want it to become you often use two to five different grain sizes. Is your knife still relatively sharp and is sharpening until you end up with razor-sharp results not necessary? If it isn’t a combination of a medium-fine and a fine grain sharpening stone will be enough. However, if your knife is so blunt it won’t cut through paper if your life depended on it, and is only the sharpest knife sharp enough for you? If so it could be possible to start with a 120 grain and a handful of stones later you will end with a 10.000 grain of higher.
