Low grits 400/1000 combination whetstone.

The KAI Shun Combination Whetstone is a double-sided, green carbide, Japanese waterstone, ideal for sharpening Japanese knives, Damascus knives or other high hardness knives.
Equipped with a plastic casing also has a gutter and a water reservoir, for moistening the whetstone during the grinding process.

One side offers 400-grit sharpening that will quickly remove material from the edge, helping reveal the sharpness once more.
The other side, at 1000-grit, will smooth the edge even more.
If looking for an ultra sharp bevel, higher grit stones are required, like the KAI 1000/6000-grit Combination Whetstone.

Using Instructions:

1. Soak the stone in the water for 5 minutes, and then put it on a steady platform. Sharpening the knives with one or two steps is decided by the degree of blunt tool.

Step 1: 400 coarse grit, used to repair the dull edge.
Hold the knife at an angle of 10° - 20°, depending on the knife's angle and grind the edge on the surface of the stone back and forth with gentle pressure. Keep sharpening it until the edge is sharp enough.
After sharpening the tool, it needs to be honed with coarse grinding after a month. It also depends on the specific situation.

Step 2: 1000 grit is for the finer grinding, a necessary step to eliminate burrs of the edge.
Use more gentle pressure, repeat step 1, and repair the edge smoothly and keenly.

2.Wipe it with wet cloth or rinse it with water after sharpening the tool, and then dry it. Clean the stone surface with a soft brush and put it in the air to make it dry.

Generally speaking, use it once a month to keep your blade sharp.
