How to use:
Soak your sharpening stone in water before you use it – five minutes is usually enough, ten minutes is acceptable for coarse stones. For sharpening, rest the stone on a non-slip base or wedge it firmly between two pieces of wood. Use as much of the stone’s surface as possible; this will postpone as long as possible the inevitable dishing effect. Although the slurry formed by grinding should be rinsed off regularly, it can be left on at the stage where you need a finer sharpening effect – as with a finer stone, which is useful towards the end of the sharpening process. Before changing to a finer stone, clean the tools to avoid transferring coarse grit to the next step of the sharpening process.
