These King Stones are legitimate Japanese Water Stones made in, you guessed it, Japan. They are extremely versitile and are the highest quality stones I have used. However, there are a few more good companies out there. Water stones are true to the craft of knife honing and sharpening and is a useful skill to teach yourself. I highly recommend watching virtuovice (YouTube Name) on YouTube for excellent tutorials on how to sharpen with stones.

The lower grit stones like the 250 and 400 are great for taking out chips in the blades or reprofiling the edge to fit your needs or preferences. As a camper who beats on knifes and axes, I really need this benefit to take out those chips and these stones do so beautifully.

A good stone grit to breach the gab between the lower grits and the finishing stone is the 1000 grit. This will help smooth out the edge and give it some great sharpness. It also makes finishing the edge with a 3000 or 4000 grit stone an easier and less time-consuming step in the process. Finally, you should use a leather strop with a green and black compound to really get a good edge.

Bottom Line and Reccommending Sharpening System:

1.) 250/1000 grit King Water Stone
2.) 3000 or 4000 grit King Stone
3.) Leather strop with compound

You only really need the 250, 1000, and 3000 (or 4000) grit stones with the strop. I have seen the strop put a better edge than 8000 grit stones. Keep in mind a strop is only 30 bucks or so, and you could almost spend $100 on an 8000 grit stone. This reccommended sytem will make a butter knife scary sharp if you wanted it too. However, the stones are expensive and will loose shape over time depending on how much you use them. But the time you use them will definitely yield better results than a spyderco Sharpmaker (I have one). I also reccommend some sort of a stone holder like the Steelex Sharpening Stone Holder. This works well and makes it easier to work with.

Nice stone for the kitchen. I use the #1000 side to keep my chef's knives razor sharp. Lay the stone on top of a damp towel, sprinkle with water, and working a knife is a breeze.

Now that I know how to use this, it is very useful. The first time I tried to sharpen a knife, I actually dulled it with this. But after watching a couple of Youtube videos on sharpening knives, and with lots of practice, it works great. My knives (all Wüsthof) have not been this sharp since the day I bought them. I would highly recommend anyone with good knives to purchase this stone and keep them sharp. They will cut and slice better and will be less dangerous.

I bought this stone to replace the same one, (old one lasted 4 years however i use it every day). Its perfect for sharpening your knifes, but you do have to know how to do it. The stone does not do magic by itself and be sure to used it wet (really wet) before start sharpening knifes.

As a professional chef, I would not use any other sharpening stone. One can access videos on-line on how to properly use a stone if feeling intimidated. I bring it when I visit my family members so that I may sharpen all of their knives as well!!!

Put a small metal binder clip on knife, that tells you the 22 degree angle you should be at. Then remove the clip and maintain that angle. I go pretty crazy and do about 50 slides per side and then switch.

Nice shipping no chips or anything.

I have always been unhappy with an electric knife sharpener I had received as a gift. Knives just didn't get as sharp as I wanted them, and after some time the thing stopped sharpening knives altogether. I have been searching for a new sharpener for quite some time. Based on a lot of research I gave this stone a try. I am glad I did.
You don't have to be a Japanese master chef to obtain good results with this stone. First you have to soak it in water or get it wet until it no longer absorbs water. Second you need to immobilize it on your kitchen counter so it will stay put when you run your knife over it. I found a very simple but effective solution: Take one section of newspaper, make it wet, place on counter and put the stone on it.
There are many videos on YouTube you can watch to get an idea about how to go about the sharpening. The techniques vary. I found that there are more ways than one to get your knife sharp - much sharper than the fancy electric gadget ever did. Keep knife and stone wet, start with the green (coarse) side, then flip stone over and finish on the brown (fine) side. Rinse stone before moving on to the next knife. The angle of the blade on the stone is important. Watch the videos and you will succeed quickly and enjoy the best cutting knives you ever had!
