The Chroma 1000 Grit Japanese Whetstone is designed for regular or standard sharpening to maintain a blade edge. Start by placing the whetstone in water for 10-15 minutes and wait until bubbles disappear. Hold the knife tightly and draw the edge back and forth at an angle of 10-20 degrees. Sharpen the upper part of the edge first and work down the blade evenly. The powder that forms on the stone is essential to the sharpening process and should not be rinsed away. After sharpening, wash the knife blade in water and dry completely with a soft towel. Made in Seki, Japan.
