    Rather than read an ebook I just watched some YouTube videos. The one I found most helpful was a video showing sushi chef Hiro Terada sharpening a knife. I didn’t do it until my 2nd time using the stones but I took a flattening stone and used it to slightly round off the sharp edges on the long sides of the sharpening stones. This made sharpening much easier with no caught edges (a recommendation from a different video).

    Soak your stones for hours, not minutes. When sharpening, don’t rinse off the residue that develops on the stone. Add a bit of water as needed.

    15 degrees or less is quite a shallow angle. My first time using the stones I was holding at what I thought was 15° or so, but my edges came out quite small and I couldn’t get a good sharp edge. I had to redo several knives at a shallower angle and I will go even shallower next time. I’d rather a sharper edge that requires more frequent touch ups than a less sharp but more durable edge.

    When working on the tip of your knife you do need to lift the handle up a bit (unless your blade is on the more flexible side) but be sure to maintain your 15° angle.

    I bought the sharpening stone because the sharpener I had bought from Wusthof finally wore out, so I figured it was time to get serious.

    The sharpening stone isn’t *trivial* to use; you have to get the right angle to get the stone to work well. You can usually tell you have the angle right by the sound it makes: too quiet and your angle is too large. After a little experimentation, you can find the smallest angle where you’re actually sharpening the stone.

    I found the positioning guide worse than useless, since it masks the noise of the blade, and depending upon the size of the knife blade, it doesn’t position the blade that well, anyway.

    But after a little practice, the stone worked really well, and my biggest problem has been that we keep the knives in a crowded drawer, and if I’m not careful, I end up cutting my hand by accident.

    I’m a carpenter/avid outdoorsman so in general I like to keep a knife on me where ever I go as you find yourself in need of one more often than not. I beat on my knifes hard, regularly using them on the job site to cut miscellaneous day-to-day material that often times dulls the blade into becoming a glorified butter knife. This whetstone gets my blades back to razor sharp quality in a matter of minutes and gives me a sharp blade wherever I go. The dual sided grit is what really drew me to this stone, as the 1000 grit cleans up the edge and gets any major imperfections out and the 6000 grit gives me that razor sharp edge. Stand it comes in is nice too, keeps it in place while working the blade. You won’t regret the purchase

    This stone was my first taste into sharpening, which I used primarily for flattening the back of my plane irons and so on. In the beginning this worked like a charm, and I sharpened all of my kitchen knives like a charm and started going on some of my plane irons, but soon it started failing me in a number of ways.

    For one, the course side clogged up with metal and will not break away exposing new grit like wet stones are designed to do. By the end of my patients with this stone, it was so clogged that it was putting a brighter mirror finish on the iron backs than the fine side would ever do.

    The second issue with this whetstone is that the fine side wore away SO fast. I had to flatten it so often I could barely start before having to stop and flatten. Not only that, but because it wore away so quickly, it left an absolute mess, and I would literally have blond of removed slurry from the stone.

    All that being said, you do get what you pay for, and for a while it did do well sharpening my kitchen knives, but quickly became my worst enemy. I now use diamond stones, which I should have done from the beginning if I had known. Diamond stones prices are scary to start with which is what brought me here, but I ended up buying them in the end and just had a useless charge for this in the beginning.

    Received the stone yesterday, soaked it for about 30 minutes, turned the stone a few times to make sure it was thoroughly soaked. Brought out some old restaurant supply kitchen knives that none of my 4 systems could truly sharpen (electric sharpener, a quick sharpener with crossed carbide and ceramics, a 3 side stone that rotates and a cheaper version of clamp the knife and swing the sharpening stone at an angle across the blade systems). I had given up, resigning myself as totally incompetent at sharpening knives. So I busted out the old knives and got to work. in maybe 5 minutes that old chef knife was _incredibly_ sharp – certainly sharper than I could ever remember. By way of excitement and the need to eat supper, I pooched up some chicken thighs and made 2 slits to the bone in the meat so the marinade could get deep into the thigh. Sliced like butter. OK I hear you bruh, that’s not much of a test – but a knife that sharp makes food prep fun. Today I am breaking down the Thanksgiving turkey so it can dry brine on racks in pans in the fridge for Thanksgiving tomorrow. That breakdown and all the food prep today will be this family’s test and I’ll report back. Meanwhile, all those paring, deboning, santoku, and 3 main chef knives will get honed and ready for the day’s work.

    Disappointed. This “Mighty Dreams” Stone is 1 1/2 inches shorter and 3/4 inch narrower than the standard size that I have. You really need the full size. The base is nice. I place my soaked King stone on a wet single layer of old towel to hold the stone in place.
    I am using the sharpening guide, which I like, with my King 1000 and King 6000 real natural stones.
    I don’t know if or when I will use this “Dream” stone again.

    I am reviewing this whetstone and company, they both would be 5+ stars! However, I agree about the movement of the blade and the need to go to you tube. My main gripe with this stone is the assumed fact that you should start on the 1000 on your tactical blades when you must start with a lower grit and work up like everything. On a study knife , my case My KaBar. I almost broke down after the exhaustive effort I have done on it mostly to no avail. Can’t just jump in on the 1000 in my opinion , need to start with something like 100-220-400 grit with certain knives. Company is by far and away Top notch and as the prior reviewer stated they are wonderfully proactive with their packets which puts them at the top of my list on best companies to deal with I just wish they would let you know that you must tart with a lower grit

    Excellent sharpening stone! Forget the electric sharpeners or taking your knives to a sharpening service, this is the way! That’s the way my grandpa used to do and his knives were always sharp. This does take a little bit of time but hey, that’s why you spent so much money on your excellent knives! Don’t just let them dull with time, this stone will make them as sharp as the day you bought them. It has a rougher and a finer surfaces and a very nice solid base to keep the stone in place while you’re sharpening your knife. I did not use the enclosed attachment for the proper angle and did a good work of getting a razor-like edge, but the attachment guide does look very useful. Long story short, if you have a nice set of knives (I have Gunther Wilhelm), this sharpening stone is a must have if you want to keep your knives in a great sharp condition
