Japanese Knife 4 Stone Complete Double / Single Bevel Maintenance Sharpening Kit

$312.00

Sharpening kit designed for sharpening single and double bevel Japanese knives.

  • hard & fast cutting Takarazukushi House Brand 400 stone for re-shaping and fast metal removal on dulled edges.
  • a semi-soft Takarazukushi House Brand 1000 for either cleaning up the 400 grit scratches or starting work on a knife that needs less metal removal.
  • a Takarazukushi House Brand 4000 grit resin stone for use as a pre-polisher or for finishing knives that do not benefit from an extra fine polish.
  • a fine Kitayama 8000 for finishing knives that do benefit from an extra fine polish.
  • Rubberized cork strop and chromium oxide compound for final burr removal and polish.
  • Spring Loaded whetstone holder.

For best results, keep a low angle when sharpening and maintain that same angle when stropping; draw the blade away from the edge and use low to moderate pressure over the center of the strop. A dozen or so strokes is typically sufficient. Strop compound is good for at least 50 stroppings if used correctly and can be re-charged when worn out. Do not re-apply compound each time.

Bernal Cutlery Takarazukushi ceramic stones are made in Japan with alumina and zircon abrasive particles that are baked with ceramics creating a fused porous stone. Harder Takarazukushi stones tend to cut deeper and faster than the semi-soft stones on double bevel knives made with wear resistant steels. Semi-soft Takarazukushis stones cut wide bevels very nicely and leave shallower easier to finish scratches than the harder stones however both hard and semi-soft work on both.

Ceramic stones will not come apart with longer soaking periods (although water should be changed) resinoid stones should not be left to soak indefinitely, and both should be allowed to dry outside of sun and wind and not allowed to freeze wet.
