Protect your investment in fine Shun cutlery and keep your edges razor-sharp with the Shun Combination Whetstone. In cases where your knife is quite dull, this Shun Combination Whetstone is the right choice. One side offers 400-grit sharpening that will quickly remove material from the edge, helping you put an new edge on the knife and restore the sharpness. The other side, the 1000-grit stone, will smooth and finish the edge. If you want an even more polished edge, look into our 1000/6000-grit Combination Whetstone. You will need to thoroughly soak this whetstone before sharpening.
Shun in Japanese actually translates to "at the peak of perfection," and no words could better describe this outstanding company. Renowned for their traditional knife making style and aesthetic design, the highly skilled artisans at the Kai Corporation (the parent company of "Shoon") have been making blades of the highest quality in homage to the legendary sword smiths of Seki, Japan for over 100 years. Each and every knife is handmade, from beginning to end, requiring at least 100 meticulous steps along the way. It is out of this respect and admiration towards their ancestors, coupled with advanced technology and materials, that Shun produces basically pieces of art that also happen to be razor-sharp knives.
