Whetstone Sharpening

Wetstone Sharpening – $18

A highly desirable method of transforming dull blades back into powerful tools is utilizing a whetstone. A whetstone is essentially a rectangular block of stone that offers varying levels of grit used in sharpening knives.

Each whetstone provides a different use, as one is typically coarse and helps set the edge, while some are smooth and refined to polish the edge. However, specialized techniques are required to achieve the ideal edge, which can be challenging for those unfamiliar with the process.
