Using the same knives over and over can lead to the loss of their sharpness and make cutting frustrating. Even worse, you can hurt yourself with dull and chipped edges.
If you want your knives to stay sharp and have that nice finish like the first time you used them, you should sharpen them every once in a while.
However, finding the right knife sharpener is not an easy job. I’ve tried dozens of them and while most of them got the job done, I wasn’t satisfied with the longevity of both sharpness and the sharpener itself.
Sometimes it is best to get back to basics and try something that's been used for many centuries as the way to sharpen cutting tools with a whetstone.
Finding the right whetstone is not easy. Different stones have different features and purpose so you need to have at least some knowledge about them if you want to get the best results. If not, there is a high chance that the one you're using is not adequate for your knives and you’ll ruin them.
That's why today I'm going to talk about whetstones, what to consider when buying them as well as my list of best whetstones currently available on the market in my opinion.
