Keep Blades Sharp with a Whetstone from Knife Supplies
For the past 16 years, Knife Supplies has been one of Australia’s most trusted sources of outdoor tools, knives and their accessories—such as a whetstone. A dull bladed knife will not serve your needs as well as a sharp one, and it can even be more dangerous to use. With our selection of blade sharpeners, you can keep your knife’s blade honed and ready for when it is needed.
What You Should Know About Oil Stone Sharpeners
Oil stone sharpeners, also known as Arkansas stones, are a traditional sharpening tool for knives and other blades. With use, the fine edge of blades can get dinged and flattened, dulling the knife and making it more difficult to use. Dull blades often require greater force than sharp ones, and this can lead to injuries. Here are a few tips on using an oil stone:
Always use an oilstone on a stable surface for safety. Wet a clean kitchen towel or rag on your worktable and place the oilstone on top of it to keep it from slipping during the sharpening process.
Oilstones have two or three different sides that vary in coarseness. Always start with the coarsest side and move to the smoother surfaces as you sharpen. Add one or two teaspoons of mineral oil to the stone. If the stone dries out while you are using it, add more oil.
Hold the blade at a 22° angle with the base on the stone and move it in one fluid motion, running the blade along the stone while applying gentle pressure with your other hand. Repeat this process between 10-30 times per side. Some knives, such as Japanese kitchen knives, use a different angle, so it is best to check that first.
