CHROMA Japan Chef Ceramic Whetstone ST-2/8 is a high quality dual-sided grinding stone use for sharpening knives with extra sharp blades, Grit: 200 & 800.
Grit 800: Standard - For regular sharpening / maintenance of edge.
Grit 200 - Coarse grain used to pre-grind dull knives or for smaller repairs.
Care and proper use of a high-quality knife is always essential to maintain the best cutting edge and to insure the highest possible degree of safety when using. After all, a dull knife is a dangerous knife. The more pressure required to cut with a knife the greater chance of an accident occurring while it is being used.
Ideally, the knife should be sharpened daily (for professional cooks) or about every six months (for hobby cooks), and by the same person each time or with the help of a ‘sharping guide‘. Each person has an individual angle at which he or she sharpens the knife.
