This Global superfine 5000 grit ceramic whetstone finely hones a knife edge which extends the length of time it will stay sharp. When sharpening knives, scissors, planes, engraving tools, etc, it's most important to remember to maintain the same angle (degree). This applies whether one is using a ceramic whetstone or a honing rod. Apply a small amount of water to the surface. Then hold the knife so that the blade meets the face of the whetstone at an angle of 10°-15°. Sharpening instructions are included.

I bought this stone to keep my new global knives polished edge. Works well with a few passes (using the correct angle 15-20 degrees) and the knife edge is sharp as brand new.

This stone is great. It's pricey, but it leaves a very sharp edge on the blade. I used it with the clip on sharpening guides after sharpening on the medium grit stone. My knife was like new again!
