Make knife sharpening easier by getting the right whetstone. The King Combination Stone shown here has includes a stand and has what you need to remove grinder marks and finish with a polished edge. Made from the same materials as the King Deluxe Whetstones, this item will give much better results than an oil stone. Please see pictures for both sides of the whetstone! The King KW-65 (HT-65) Whetstone utilizes a combination of 1000 Grit on one side to sharpen and smooth the blade while the other side is a 6000 grit for honing the blade. The convenience of having both sides allows for a much sharper knife.
Great combination for my kitchen knives.

I have gone nuts with this thing. I have sharpened every knife in the kitchen except the steak knives with this awesome combo. The 1000 grit (brown side) is perfect for sharpening up dull knives and the 6000 grit (beige side) polishes the edge to a highly reflective, almost mirror finish.

Mine arrived chipped at two corners too. But it doesn’t affect sharpening, so I decided to keep it.
Works great, even for beginners!!

Arrived chipped on one corner which I can work around. I have never used one of these before and wanted to sharpen my cheap Chicago cutlery knife set before I get my first ‘nice’ set of knives.
Good stone if you know what youre doing.

This is a great stone for the price that you get it for. I love having 2 different grits on 1 stone. Some list this as a con since it will obviously not last as long as 2 separate stones, but I can not imagine sharpening so many knives, so often that I would wear this one out.
… of "stone" rather than someone trying to find the best version of this type

My review is probably more aimed to someone questioning using this type of “stone” rather than someone trying to find the best version of this type. I say that because I’d not used this kind of stone before and have only used this one. Previously I’ve sharpened with true stones, diamond-plates, grinders, and various grits of sand paper. I bought one of these after I ran into a set of Ashley Iles chisels/gouges that wouldn’t keep a smooth edge line. I wanted to keep the tools, and had spent hours attempting to get the edge I needed – they came to me second-hand and in need of a fresh edge, so some of the work was unavoidable. But for whatever reason, whether I tried the slowest gentlest method or the fastest, I could get hair shaving sharpness but working wood (maple) quickly caused the edge to go jagged. I nearly pitched them. Instead, I bought this combination stone. I read the reviews with the various methods of soaking people were using, and decided to soak the course side for 15 min and to spray the fine side with a fine mist – once just before using and then as needed. Within less than 10 minutes, I’d re-edged a gouge that had been jagged before, and I could selectively shave hairs. I was pretty happy, but still apprehensive. Then I took it to my work, a bass (violin) scroll, and found the edge held up and cut the maple like butter. I’ve worked over 4 of the tools from that set with this stone, and put in hours of work with a couple of them without needing even a touch-up. The edges are still as intact and mirror like as ever.
Arrived as advertised, Japanese writing and all. Don’t bother with Google photo translate; it’s useless. Just Google videos on how to use one, or ask a native Japanese speaking friend to translate the packaging. Google photo translate returns a bunch of jibberish that makes no sense. Apparently this thing is called a “toy” in Japan?! And please to be mindful of the fingers! This is indeed the 1,000/6,000 grit stone, and it does come with a base stand. After sharpening my knives on this, they were able to cleanly shave a tomato as thin as deli meat…nearly transparent… and if you’ve never tried that, it DOES make your ham sandwich taste better (that and Duke’s Mayo, but that’s a whole nother matter!) You will need to determine the proper angle to sharpen your knives. Most Japanese knives, like my Shun, have a 16º blade angle, while most western blades are 20-22º. If in doubt, Google it. If you have a protractor (or a smart phone with the right app), you can easily maintain the correct angle while sharpening. Once you find it, it just comes naturally. This even got my inherited set of 40 year old made in Japan “Old Homestead” brand knives razor sharp (although they will not hold the edge nearly as long as my Shun!) This whetstone, in combination with a good honing steel, will keep your knives at their best for a lifetime.
good stone for the money

This stone works well at getting an edge extremely sharp. You need to start with the edge ground fairly sharp because you can’t remove a lot of material with this type of stone. The plastic cover this comes in works well to pre-soak the stone. I wish the stone was labeled because it’s not easy to tell which side is 1000 grit and which side is 6000. You can feel it when you’re sharpening, but you can’t tell by looking at it. The plastic base is a nice touch.
