Sharpening stones for knives are the simplest and available tools to maintain the sharpness of the instrument. Everyone knows that any knife, even of the highest quality, starts to lose its sharpness after a while. Microdefects appear on the blade — burrs, cracks, chips. If they are not periodically removed, the knife may even be out of service.
The market offers a huge variety of tools for sharpening from whetstones to electric grinders. But these are the knife stones that got the most popularity and outspread. Rightly so: everyone may purchase and learn how to use them at home, and there is no need to apply to professionals every time. These stones may be made of natural or artificial material and differ in grain. If one selects “tools” correctly as per these characteristics, then 2-3 stones will be enough to perform almost any work on sharpening the knife — from rough processing, removing metal and removing large defects, to finish grinding and polishing.
