  • Q Are diamond sharpening stones worth it?

    A “Diamond Sharpening Stone”
    Diamond stones have key advantages over other types of sharpening stones. Diamond stones are the fastest cutting sharpening stones. Speed is especially helpful when working with coarse grits where you may spend additional time on a dull edge.
  • Q Which diamond stone is best?

    A When buying diamond stones, Huayida suggests getting a coarse stone between 120-400 grit (300 is best), a fine stone between 600-1000 (600 is best) and a super-fine between 1200-1500 (1200 is best).
  • Q What is 1000 grit sharpening stone used for?

    A Less than 1000 grit is typically used to repair knives with chipped edges, 1000 to 3000 grit are used to sharpen dull knives, 4000 to 8000 grit are finishing stones and are used to refine your knife edge.
  • Q Can you sharpen a knife with a 1000 grit stone?

    A The #1000 grit whetstone is your go-to sharpening stone. If your Japanese knives need a good sharpen to regain their edge, then this grit is your starting point. But use this sparingly as it will wear your knife down.
  • Q Do you need to flatten a sharpening stone?

    A We recommend flattening them at the beginning of every sharpening session-it's a 15-second job in most cases. Flatten oilstones about every 10 sessions. Another benefit of flattening your stones: You'll remove embedded metal filings that impair the stone's sharpening action.
  • Q Can you over soak a sharpening stone?

    A Rough and medium grit whetstones should be soaked in water for 10-15 minutes prior to usage. When using fine stones, simply splash water on the stone as you sharpen. If you soak fine stones in water for too long, they can begin to crack.
  • Q Which side of the sharpening stone do I use first?

    A If your whetstone has a coarse and fine side, begin with the coarse side. The same goes if you have multiple whetstones. Work from coarse to fine.
  • Q Is diamond good for sharpening knives?

    A For honing, or putting a final clean edge on a tool, diamond sharpening plates are clearly not as good as sharpening stones because they simply cannot be made in the finer grit grades. With a diamond plate you cannot produce a surface with a mirror finish, eg, on knife blades.
  • Q What is the sharpest way to sharpen a knife?

    A To sharpen your knives at home, you can use an electric sharpener or a whetstone (also called a sharpening stone). Electric sharpeners require little effort on your end, but diamond stones are generally the preferred choice since they're gentler on blades, relatively inexpensive, and easy to use.
  • Q Do pull through knife sharpeners work?

    A Because of the mechanics of use, it is impossible to apply the same amount of pressure throughout the blade. As a result, the edge tends to go out of shape changing the original blade profile. There is absolutely no way you can sharpen a knife with a bolster using a pull through sharpener.
  • Q Should you push or pull knife sharpening?

    A Push the point you want to sharpen with your fingers. While keeping the angle and pushing the point with your fingers, stroke the blade until it reaches the other edge of the whetstone, then pull the blade back until it reaches the edge of the whetstone.
  • Q Are you supposed to sharpen both sides of a knife?

    A Most knives have an angle on both sides of the blade or a double bevel. Knives with a double bevel need to be sharpened on both sides of the blade. A small number of knives have a single bevel.
