If you don’t want to spend money on two stones, then this sharpening stone, that features an average grit sharpening surface on one side and a fine grit finishing surface on the flip side, is perfect for you.
Specifications Brand: King Size: 0.98"H x 2.48" x 7.28" Use & Precaution Before using this sharpening stone, soak in water the #1000 grit side for 2 minutes and splash water on the #6000 grit side only. Never soak it! Doing so may result in the stone splitting or breaking.
