Stone sharpener for sharpening knives, whetstone 1000/6000 + EBOOK

The Bacher double-sided stone sharpener is designed for sharpening all types of kitchen and outdoor knives, pocket knives, machetes and many others. The wide sharpening surface of the stone ensures proper adaptation to any blade size. The accessories supplied with the sharpener make sharpening easy, precise and safe.

A stone sharpener quickly restores the desired sharpness to blades, making activities that require the use of a knife extremely easy and pleasant. The stone is made of compressed abrasive grain and has two sides with the following gradations:

  • 1000 – for daily sharpening, leveling and polishing of the blade
  • 6000 – to finalize the sharpening process and give the blade extreme sharpness

How to use:

  1. Soak the stone in water for approximately 15 minutes.
  2. Place the stone on the included stand to keep it stable while sharpening.
  3. Holding the knife at a right angle, move the blade over the lower grade stone for about 10 minutes, applying constant, very light pressure.
  4. Turn the stone over and repeat the process.

Gradation of whetstones

There are several standards for determining the abrasive grit of stones. The most commonly used are Japanese (JIS R6001), American (ANSI) and European (FEPA F and FEPA P).

Unfortunately, most sharpening stone manufacturers do not specify the standard to which their products are marked. In many cases the gradation is only an estimate. Bacher whetstones have a certified grit size according to the Japanese standard JIS R6001.

The sharpener has an SGS certificate where the min. grit size is stated.
