Sharpening Options During the course of time, even the best knife will lose its initial sharpness. Using the sharpening devices by ZWILLING J.A . HENCKELS will make this task easy, with the correct technique.
Like sandpaper, sharpening stones come in a variety of roughness or grain; the coarser the finish the more abrasive. Whet stones can use water or oil as a lubricant; water stones are much more convenient. For regular sharpening with a stone, use the TWIN® Stone Pro (250 and 1000 grain).
TWIN® Finishing Stone Pro is used for a professional, scalpel-like and mirror finished edge (3000 and 8000 grain). Both stones are ceramic, manufactured materials that require minimal water and last longer than natural stones. Sharpening with the TWIN® sharpening stones may need some practice but the results are well worth the effort.
