The Shun Combination Whetstone will help put that factory edge back on your Shun cutlery, if/when they need it. The stone will restore the dullest blade close to its original state in no time. The dual-sided whetstone contains two types of ceramic grit: coarse (300 grit) and fine (1,000 grit). The stone needs to be completely soaked for 10 to 20 minutes prior to use. Always make sure the stone stays slightly wet throughout the process. Shun recommends sharpening once a month for frequently used blades, and every 3 to 6 months for others. Stone is stored and presented in a gift box, and includes a rubber base. Made in Japan. Shun item number DM0708.
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 of 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.
