How to use the Wüsthof whetstone:

  • Submerge the stone in water for about 5 - 10 minutes.
  • Continue to apply water while sharpening. The stone releases small particles during the sharpening process. This powder in combination with water allows the sharpening.
  • Place the stone on a slip-resistant base like a towel.
  • Start by using the coarse grit of the stone.
  • Move the blade back and forth at an angle of 10 - 15° using gentle pressure.
  • Start at the tip of the blade, continue with the middle section, and finish at the end of the blade. After a while you will notice a small burr at the edge.
  • Now repeat the same process on the other side of the blade.
  • Finally, turn the stone over and repeat the procedure, this time using the fine grit of the stone.
  • In order to remove the remaining burr, pull the blade at an angle over the stone. Now you will have achieved the best sharpness.
  • Rinse the stone and clean off the grinding residue. Clean your knife with hot water.
