For keeping both single-bevel and double-bevel blades at their very sharpest, the Shun Combination 1000/6000 Grit Whetstone offers both medium and fine grits for the maintenance of fine cutlery. First use the 1000 grit side at the necessary angle for basic upkeep, then bring out a refined, polished edge with the ultra-fine 6000 side. If your blades edges feature any flaws or bends, it may be necessary to sharpen them with a coarser grit first before using this whetstone. This whetstone is an excellent choice for keeping a blade well-maintained. The Shun Combination 1000/6000 Grit Whetstone includes a rubber tray to prevent slipping during use, and comes in an attractive gift box.
Shun has been producing high quality cutlery and accessories for over one hundred years in Seki City, Japan. The Shun Combination 1000/6000 Grit Whetstone carries a limited lifetime warranty.
