Morihei Hishiboshi Whetstone #1000
A great medium grit stone is a must in maintaining quality kitchen knives. This medium grit range is perfect for not only re-setting edges before using finer polishing stones, but also for creating practical, long-lasting edges on workhorse blades. If you were to have only one stone for most kitchen knife maintenance, it would be this grit.
Recommended usage: This is a splash-and-go stone, but it could benefit from a 1-2m soak right out of the box. It excels at creating a toothy edge for almost all types of steels (especially for high carbon steels). It has a nice feedback, and gives enough slurry for wide bevel polishing job albeit it can leave scratches on the soft steel. Lastly, these Morihei Hishiboshi stones work extremely well as a set, we highly recommend purchasing two to three different grits in the same series to fully benefit from their line up.
