Japanese Roller Whetstone Sharpener
The Japanese Roller Whetstone Sharpener is easy to use and less messy than traditional whetstone blocks. Just add water and pull the knife back and forth through the sharpening slots until sharp. It sharpens faster and with less effort than traditional black whetstones.
Many manual sharpeners have coarse grits (lower # = coarser grit) that do not give the sharpness cooks want. The #1000 grit diamond sharpener is the ideal grit to maintain a good level of sharpness on any blade.
Unlike dry sharpeners that scratch the blade and remove metal – the 1000 Grit Japanese Roller Whetstone Sharpener utilizes liquid to reduce friction and scratches. Whetstones give a superior edge and the slots are angled at 15 degrees for a more durable edge. Using oil or dish detergent in place of water will polish the blade edge for a more refined finish.
The 1000 grit whetstone roller sharpener has a performance similar to block whetstones but saves time by reducing set up and clean up time. It is small and lightweight for easy storage and travel.
When the rollers do wear out the roller wheels can be replaced by snapping them out. Overall it it an environmentally better option than fixed wheels and results in a lower overall cost of maintenance. When it comes time to replace the #100 grit diamond wheel we will sell those from our website.
4 Easy Steps To Use:
- Add water, oil or dish detergent to the sharpener reservoir.
- Spin the roller wheels then close the reservoir cap
- Pull the knife back and forth to sharpen 10 times.
- Wipe the blade dry and it is ready to use.
The 1000 grit whetstone roller sharpener works for both single and double bevel knives. When the whetstone roller wears down just pop it out and replace with a new one. This makes it an ecologically sound solution to your sharpening needs.
