Whetstone with base for knife sharpening systems #1500

Whetstone with base for knife sharpening systems #1500

Replaceable 1500 grit whetstone dedicated to sharpening systems or manual sharpening. Made from high quality corundum. Designed for sharpening very dull knives. Effectively removes micro-cracks and scratches caused by daily use.

The aluminium base on which the stone is placed ensures easy installation and solid mounting on the system sharpener.

The stone is designed for wet sharpening – it should be placed in water for 5-10 minutes before sharpening.

Thanks to its small size, it fits easily into a trouser pocket or backpack, allowing you to take it practically anywhere and extending its range of use. A stone used outside the home is perfect for manual knife sharpening in all conditions.

Bacher stones are distinguished by both quality and size – they are 25 mm wide. This is the American standard for system stones. Unlike Chinese sharpeners which use 20 mm stones. Of course, our system stones are also interchangeable with 20 mm stones, but the larger size means an increase in sharpening speed and stone life of up to 25%!

They fit sharpening systems such as: Apex, Ganzo, Ruixin, Pro Edge, Kazak, KKmoon and others.

Waterstone grading

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

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