Why use a sharpening stone?
Using a sharpening stone is certainly not the easiest way to take care of your knife, but it is certainly one of the ways to obtain an excellent result. However, the use of sharpening stones requires a certain skill in order to be used. This is because the knife must be angled in order to be sharpened on stone, and it is not always easy to offer the right angle.
How to use a sharpening stone;
To use a sharpening stone correctly, it is therefore necessary to correctly angle the knife on the stone, so as to resume the angle of the wire. Once this is done it will be possible to start moving the blade on the stone, also adding water if necessary to facilitate movement. To make it easier to sharpen on stone, many leading brands in the sector have devised guided angle systems. We see an example in the manual sharpener Work Sharp Whetstone Knife Sharpener which at the edges of the support for the stone, has fins already arranged for a determined angle. In this way it will be possible to maintain the correct angle more easily, without risking losing the position due to the movement.
The use of the knife sharpening stone;
One of the cultures that has certainly contributed to the spread and use of sharpening stones is the Asian Japanese culture. The classic Japanese knife in fact, hardly has forms of protection for the fingers, in the lower part of the blade, near the handle. The characteristic neck that can be found in Western kitchen knives to protect the fingers, is instead absent in Japanese knives and this precisely because this protective thickness would prevent the knife from sharpening on stone.

These are made of different steels and for this they offer a greater or lesser hardness of the blade according to the different characteristics.
To choose the right tool, you must first make sure which grit is best for sharpening your knife. There are therefore finer grains, for softer steels and coarse grains for harder and less flexible steels.
