The Japanese not only believe that sharpening is fundamental, but they have a particular way of sharpening their blades. The Japanese system, or by sections, divides the knife into areas to be sharpened. Japanese stones have a great reputation and a long tradition, these stones are fine-grained and porous.
During the sharpening process their particles are constantly renewed while they are in friction with the knife, allowing new particles to continually perform the task of sharpening and settling. If the knife is very worn and damaged, we will need a much more abrasive coarse-grained stone. Discover the quality of the Japanese stones we offer at MB.
