This Wusthof water stone features a coarse grain on one side with a finer grain on the other. The brown side of the stone (with the coarse grain) is suitable for removing small flaws and dents and to prepare the edge for honing. The blue side (with the finer grain) is used to hone the edge to the desired sharpness. Using gentle pressure, simply pull the edge of the blade in a 20-degree angle across the stone from the heel of the blade to its tip. Repeat this same procedure on the other side of the edge. Before each use, immerse the stone in water for 5-10 minutes. Always place the stone on a flat, slip-resistant surface, and use the entire surface of the stone when sharpening. This will ensure even wear of the stone over time.
