Product Description

Make knife sharpening easier by getting the right whetstone. The King Combination Stone shown here has includes a stand and has what you need to remove grinder marks and finish with a polished edge. Made from the same materials as the King Deluxe Whetstones, this item will give much better results than an oil stone. Please see pictures for both sides of the whetstone! The King KW-65 (HT-65) Whetstone utilizes a combination of 1000 Grit on one side to sharpen and smooth the blade while the other side is a 6000 grit for honing the blade. The convenience of having both sides allows for a much sharper knife.

Puts a nice sharp edge on the knife.

Leather strop with compound You only really need the 250, 1000, and 3000 (or 4000) grit stones with the strop.

What comes with this item is: the stone, the stand, a clear plastic 'box', and a cardboard insert.

I have gone nuts with this thing. I have sharpened every knife in the kitchen except the steak knives with this awesome combo. The 1000 grit (brown side) is perfect for sharpening up dull knives and the 6000 grit (beige side) polishes the edge to a highly reflective, almost mirror finish.

HOWEVER, this combo is not good for an extremely dull edge or for a blade that needs to be re-profiled. It is possible to slowly re-profile with the 1000 grit, but for me it was an arduous and ultimately wasteful task. I ended up buying a 400/800 grit Norton tool sharpening stone from Home Depot for the knife I had to re-profile.

In conclusion, I am extremely satisfied with this combo King Stone, it does what it's supposed to do. I sharpen my knives at 15 degrees a side on 1000 then 6000, then I strop carefully with a paddle-backed leather strop and stropping compound from Bark River (not on Amazon). This results in crazy sharp knives.

The next step is Chosera stones, they are much more expensive, but I hear they are the cats pajamas :)

NOTE: I was not careful with the 6000 grit side at first and used too steep an angle, the knife actually bit into the 6000 grit and took off a small shallow chunk, the stone is still working great though.

I have been a carpenter for almost 12 years. The first 6 years were mainly rough carpentry and my stone of choice was an oil stone. I have since moved on to finish carpentry and woodworking. Razor sharp chisels and planes are a must now! And this combination stone, along with a 800-1000 grit waterstone, produce mirror sharp edges that last a long time. And, unlike an oil stone, waterstones can be honed flat again and cut the metal much faster. And you don't have to worry about the stone cloging.

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. 6000 and 8000 grit stones are not needed at all in my opinion. 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.

I would have given 5 stars if there had of been a small bottle that came with the kit that could be used to hold water for the stones. It holds up well IF you know how to use and care for it. Sharpening with a stone ( actually a series of stones ) is not natural. To use one you should readup on a couple of internet articles on knife sharpening. I use a low grit, say 600-800 to get the shape and bevel right and bring the edge down to a rough sharp. This is fine for an axe, but, not a knife. After the bevel and most of the dull edge has been ground down ( no light reflects off the cutting edge ) move to the 1000 grit stone. At 1000 grit you will remove a lot less material , but all you are after is to get the scratches off the bevels and refine the edge a little more. When the edge is sharp enough to cut notebook paper without snags it is time for the 6000 grit stone. WARNING, the 6000 grit stone is soft and you can gouge it out in a single stroke. Keep it wet so the metal shavings float on the surface instead of being ground into the stone and reducing the cutting power of some of the surface area. This is a polishing stone, not a sharpeniing stone. It polishes the edge you put on with the 1000 grit stone. It polishes the bevels to a near mirror edge as well as helping to remove the little wire edge that ends up on all sharpenings. Now strop the edge (fatigue the wire edge till it comes off), you will know when it is complete when you run a finger UP the bevel and do not feel a small lip at the top where the edge is located. If you still feel the edge then strop some more; in a pinch, you can even strop on the palm of your hand. Remember to strop both sides alternately till the wire edge is gone.Read more ›
