This is your Everything Stone. The one stone to rule them all. Every knife being resharpened touches this stone. Either this is the starting place or to be used after the 220 Grit stone. We recommend finishing most non-Japanese knives with this stone, but if you are the kind that wants to get an extra 20% out of everything you will want to take those Henckels to 4000 or 8000 and really have them sing.
Please soak for 20-30 minutes before use.
