King Whetstone are well known throughout the world.
The 1000 is a "medium" stone. Great for sharpening well maintained knives.
If you struggle to get a burr with the 1000 consider a lower grit stone.
The 6000 is a "polishing" stone and is a great grit to finish a sharpening progression with.
If you want the extra edge I recommend a Leather strop.
Most combination stones come in a 1000/3000 setup.
The 1000/6000 is more ideal in my opinion.
Does need to be soaked in water before use?
Yes. 15-20 mins

Hi my name is Leigh, and I’m a chef from Newcastle Australia.
I’ve been cooking professionally for around 18 years in some of Australia’s top restaurants. (Currently cooking at Signal Box)
I’ve created a small collection of high-quality Japanese Knives and Chef Knives that I recommend.
Basically, if I wouldn’t use it professionally then I don’t sell it! Read More
