How to Use Your New Whetstone: Click to watch

Important Tips for Care and Maintenance:

Tip 1: This whetstone does NOT require the use of any oil. Water actually works better!

Tip 2: While you’re sharpening the knife, be sure that the surface of the stone appears to be wet. Drizzle a few more drops of water on the stone’s surface every now and then to keep it moist.

Tip 3: Rinse off the whetstone after use, and allow to dry for AT LEAST 48 hours before storing… Remember it’s soaked full of water even though it may feel dry to the touch.
