For those new to the world of sharpening stones we are here to help you through the process. Our stones are man-made from artificial materials which are considered superior to natural stone due to the consistency of the particles. They come in 7 different grits ranging from the super coarse #220 to the super fine #10000.
The ceramic sharpening rods we sell are around #10000 and are meant to be used to hone the existing knife edge and keep it sharp. You can only do this for so long though until the knife needs a new edge which is when you need to use the stones.
Please note: We do not ship stones outside of the UK due to weight.
