Whetstone Knife Sharpener

Product number: 15237

Sharpening knives with a whetstone knife sharpener is a method used for hundreds of years, and one go with this double-sided model is all you’ll need to see why.

Far cheaper than a new set of knives, the whetstone produces a razor-sharp edge with minimum effort. One side of the whetstone is a coarse 240 grit which will bring dull blades back to life, whilst the fine side is 800 grit to restore a keen edge to chipped, damaged or blunt blades.

With a non-slip base to ensure stability when sharpening, just soak the stone in water for 5-10 minutes before use.

"Very effective"

star star star star star

I presume I must have the 'cheap' knives as referred to by other reviewers of this item, because after years of frustration with sharpening steels that never did the job, this block delivers effective simplicity itself. I am a competent and varied cook, and have not experienced any problems with using the knives on any foods after sharpening. I really rate this product.

"OK but not for top flight knives"

The coarse side is 240 grit and the fine side is 800 grit. This is fine if you are working with cheap hard stainless steel blunt knives and you will restore a cutting edge, but not sharp enough to glide through tomatoes or paper. Do not use this stone with expensive knives such as Global; you are likely to damage the edge. Use a stone with 1000/3000 grit or higher for your global knives

Thanks for taking the time to write your review. The Lakeland Whetstone is suitable for reviving blunt knives and keeping knives in good condition. If you want to finish off your Global knife to the highest level it's best to end on a superfine whetstone of 2000-3000 grit or contact the manufacturer of the knife for advice.

"Steer clear"

This was given to me as a Christmas present and might be ok for any cheap dull knives, but if you care enough to seek out a whetstone and have good quality knives, you'll probably know to go elsewhere. The grit rating is not provided for either side, on the packaging or website so, you'll be taking a chance. For decent quality knives you'll probably need 1000/3000 to get them razor sharp or 1000/and below if you knives are really blunt.
