KIKUICHI #6000


One of our favorites here at the shop, If you just picked up a new Kikuichi knife this stone is perfect for keeping it sharp for the rest of its life. Great for any other knife as well this #6000 develops a great slurry helping to achieve a very nicely polished edge and comes with a plastic stand.

*stand cannot be removed

All of the whetstones sold at the shop are Waterstones, do not put oil on any of them, you will ruin your stone. Holding the knife at a consistent angle while sharpening is one of, if not, the most important thing to consider when sharpening; thus, maintaining a flat stone is of equal importance. Pick up a truing stone to maintain a flat stone in order to achieve the best results.

If your stones are super worn out and completely concave using a truing stone will take hours to flatten them. Consider purchasing a King flattening stone to get the job done quicker.
