Need help deciding which sharpening stone is best for you? Take a look at this quick guide to help with your decision.

 

COARSE

(220 - 800 GRIT)

  • Useful for fixing chipped and damaged blades.
  • Also prefered for knives that have not been sharpened in a while, the heavier grit will grind away steel faster.

 

MEDIUM
(1000 - 3000 GRIT)
  • Useful for honing and establishing burr on blades.
  • Great all around sharpening stone to have for everyday sharpening. Will get knives sharp quick and make edge razor sharp.

 

FINE
(3000+ GRIT) 
  • Useful for polishing edge on knives and making final edge.
  • Great stone for high quality knives that can reach high levels of sharpness. Creates mirror polish on edges for smoother cutting.
