    Adjust the grain size to the bluntness of your knife

    A sharpening stone is available with different grain sizes. The blunter your knife, the coarser the grain must be to get your knife sharp again. And therefore the sharper your knife, the smaller the grain can be. Here is an overview of which grain size fits the 'phase' of the knife.

    The right grain size for your knife
    Grain 200-600 Restoring a really dull knife
    Grain 800-1000 Sharpening relatively blunt knives
    Grain 2000-3000 Sharpen normal relatively sharp knives
    Grain 3000-8000 Sharpens / polishes razor blades

    Is your knife really blunt? Then we recommend using several sharpening stones with different grain sizes. First sharpen your knife with a coarse grit (200 - 600) and then you can finish it with an increasingly fine grit (3000 - 8000). Since this is common, we have special two-sided sharpening stones for sale.

    The advantages of two-sided sharpening stones

    Do you buy a two-sided sharpening stone ? Then you buy a 2-in-1 sharpening stone. These stones have two sides, with each side having a different grain size. For example, you can first start with a coarser grain size and then turn your stone over and continue with a finer grain size. The KookGigant sharpening stones come with a non-slip bamboo holder. As a result, the stone is always stable when you are sharpening. You can also easily turn the stone.
