  • Soaking - Soak for at least 5 minutes before use
  • Medium Cutting - Slows down some with harder, high-alloy steels
  • Medium Wearing - This stone dishes quickly with harder, high-alloy steels
  • Low priced - You get a great 6000 grit stone with a decent 1000 grit side

This is the smaller version of the KDS.

Because the 1000 grit side is fairly soft and thin, this stone will wear out quicker than most! This stone is suitable for folks who use their knives infrequently, but who may want a sharp knife to cook for a special occasion a few times a year.


How to use:

  1. Soak the stone in water for about 5 minutes.
  2. Splash stone with water whenever it feels dry.
  3. Start with the 1000 grit side first (dark brown). 
  4. Begin sharpening your knife in sections, do not stay in 1 section for too long.
  5. Check each section and ensure a consistent burr has developed before switching sides.
  6. Repeat the same process on the other side.
  7. Deburr your knife by using an edge trailing stoke on the whetstone (stropping).
  8. Check for any burr remaining and deburr section by section until you have a sharp edge.
  9. Repeat with the 6000 grit side
  10. Done!

Results to Expect:

After using the 6000 grit side, your edge will achieve an almost mirror-like polish, it will be quite shiny. The edge should easily push cut paper, if your sharpening angle is below 15 degrees, you may be able to cut a freestanding piece of paper in half. This edge is usable for 100% of kitchen tasks.



If your edge is sharp in some areas but not in others, check that you have deburred consistently throughout the edge. Also, make sure you have a consistent sharpening angle throughout the length of the blade.

You may have microchips on the edge if your edge cannot achieve sharpness at specific points on the edge. You may use a 400 grit stone to remove these microchips.
