Detailed information

Product detailed description


KING sharpening stones are designed for sharpening tools from sickles and scythes to carpenter's chisels and axes using water. Grit #800 for perfect sharpness – thanks to the fine stone you can remove even coarser burrs on the edge and quickly achieve a perfectly sharpened edge, which then just needs to be polished on a finer stone #3000 to #6000, for perfect sharpening.

It is a type of absorbent whetstone with fine synthetic grain, which needs to be soaked in a water bath for 10 minutes before use. Before use, just sprinkle with water to achieve a smooth surface during sharpening.

Which grit to choose?

For sharpening really dull or uneven blades, use stones with a low JIS number (Japanese classification for grit size). The lower the number, the coarser the stone. Stones with a high JIS number are intended for final and fine sharpening or smoothing.


  • #120 to #600 JIS: for dull and uneven blades
  • #700 to #2000 JIS: for normal sharpening
  • #3000 to #5000 JIS: for fine sharpening of quality blades
  • #6000+ JIS: extremely fine stones for smoothing or removing scratches
