Detailed information

Product detailed description


KING sharpening stones are intended for sharpening tools from carving chisels, planes to kitchen knives using water. Grit #1000 for perfect sharpness – thanks to the fine stone, you can even sharpen a very fine needle-point at the edge of the blade and get a perfectly sharpened edge in no time.

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

Which grit to choose?

For sharpening really blunt or uneven blades, use stones with a low JIS number (Japanese classification for grit). 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 blunt 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
