The #1000 grit stone is the basic sharpening stone. when sharpening knives, it is important to use medium stones and finishing stone. However, it is easier to use a #3,000 grit stone as a buffer in between, rather than jumping from a #1,000 grit stone to a #6,000 grit stone
Cutting oily ingredients leads to shorter edge retention. If you are planning to cut meat such as chicken, it is best to stop at the #3,000 grit stone. Although, the #6,000 grit stone will give you a more refined edge, it will also be more prone to dulling faster. Using a little rougher edge will maintain the blade for longer

Great sharpening stone and it is very durable. I received the stone with no blemishes and it was capable of bringing my custom knife to shaving sharp in a matter of minutes. The added rubber stand was extremely helpful because if you have tried to use a whetstone on a hard surface, it is like trying to grip a wet bar of soap. The stone creates a nice slurry and the left-over, tiny metal flakes are easily rinsed off. This stone is great for all skill levels!
I am so happy I found this product! The stone was bigger than I expected for the price, and when I used it I was impressed with the quality as welll. The surfaces were perfectly smooth, resulting in a finely shaped edge I was quite pleased with. The silicone grip is super handy. I tried it both wet and dry, and was satisfied with both results, though wet does work a little better. Thanks again for a great product!
This whetstone kit has brought life back to my kitchen knives and pocket knives. I found this to be one of the most cost-effective items available at the time. I do wish that the rubber base were a bit larger, but it does stay in place. I was also confused by lack of instructions saying that the fine grit should not be soaked. Perhaps that is referring to a finer grit version. I have soaked it in water ranging from 10-120 mins with no issues so far. I would recommend a finer grit if you are sharpening blades used for delicate cutting. Otherwise, the 1000/3000 does exactly what I need.
