How to sharpen with water stones

japonsky_hoblik_informaceFor proper sharpening with a Japanese water stone, it is advisable to prepare (besides the knife and stone) also a cloth and a container with water (e.g., made of plastic). Soak the stone in the container for about 10 minutes to allow the stone to sufficiently absorb water. Then place the stone on the cloth, hold the knife in your dominant hand with the blade facing towards you and start sharpening.

The knife should lie on the stone in a horizontal position at approximately a 45° angle across the width, and the blade itself should rest on the stone surface at an angle of 15 to 20°. The index finger of the hand holding the handle should rest on the back of the blade, and three fingers of the other hand should be placed on the side of the blade. Be careful not to injure yourself while handling.

With this grip, move the blade evenly across the entire surface of the stone about 30 times. A paste-like liquid will begin to form on the surface of the stone - do not wipe this liquid away during intermediate sharpening, as it increases the efficiency of the sharpening process. If the stone begins to dry out during sharpening, reapply a small amount of water.

You should repeat this process several times so that the entire blade is evenly sharpened. After sharpening, wash the knife and stone with water, dry them with a cloth, and store in a dry place.
