Is this suitable for most people's knives? I'm confused by the Grit …Is this suitable for most people's knives? I'm confused by the Grit numbers - I noticed the best selling one has 400/1000


From japanahome.com/

Whetstones come in a range of grits: Less than 1000 grit is typically used to repair knives with chipped edges, 1000 to 3000 grit are used to sharpen dull knives, 4000 to 8000 grit are finishing stones and are used to refine your knife edge.

The one I use the most is a 1000 / 4000 double sided stone. Sharpen on 1000, quick finish on the 4000

My son bought one a few days ago, excellent.

How does a stone like this compare to something like the well reviewed pro sharpener Starting to get a collection of Zelite knives and looking for something to keep them sharp

p.s. Very Left handed and awkward with it, if that makes a difference?

It's not taking off the 10% for me at checkout. I've applied the voucher.
Nevermind - after about 10 attempts, it started showing at checkout

Sharpeners like the one in your link are not good IMO. They are at a set angle which is likely to be different to how your knives came out of the factory and remove a lot of metal. There are some good youtube videos on how to sharpen knives correctly, and if you live near London this place does sharpening courses kataba.co.uk/. I highly recommend them. Once you know how to do it properly on a whetstone and have had some practice your knives will be ultra sharp and easy to keep that way. I've a relatively cheap set of Richardson knives that are 5+ years old and like razors.

The Knife I use most has a 30cm blade, I use to slice meats I have cooked on a smoker, would this whetstone do the job, or would I need a bigger one with a tabletop grip?

I use this exact stone to sharpen a 28cm knive. Works perfectly, the rubber pad it comes with is good enough but I usually put a towel under it to support it. Youtube has a load of good videos on how to use them correctly.

Those sharpeners are very brutal on your knives and will shave away a lot of metal, reducing the life of your knives. You'll get a sharper blade in the short term, but nowhere near as razor sharp as using whetstones.

I bought the 3000/8000 and 1000/4000 grit whetstones for my leatherworking blades and I would thoroughly recommend them.
It takes a bit of time and practice, but afterwards you're left with a blade that can cut through leather (or food) like butter.
...Especially butter

I’ve owned many of these cheap whetstones and couldn’t really tell between a supposedly different grit on each side most of the time. For most home cook this will do just fine but for anyone wanting a very sharp knife I suggest you look for a ceramic stone like King Stone.

Not to knock on these stone, it is what it is but don’t expect sharpening result anywhere close to 4000 grit advertised.
