Wet Stone Grinding Wheels: What To Look For

If you’re upgrading your equipment to include a wet grinding stone, consider the following benefits and what features you should look out for to achieve the most precise trim and blade longevity.

  • Affordability: Most manual kits are more affordable – both at cost and in the long-run – than electric operating systems.
  • Quality control: By manually controlling the sharpening unit, these have less risk of damaging your blades than some machine operated tools.
  • Durability: A durable, hardworking solution, wet stones are investment-worthy pieces that will extend the life of your knives and last several years in a working kitchen – even with regular use.

And among the different types of grinders on the market, there are:

  • Low-grit (with a grit number of less than 1000) are well suited to blunt knives and tools.
  • Medium-grit (with a grit number between 1000-3000) are best used for regular maintenance and recovery of blunt edges. Though it appears higher in number, this is not as coarse as a low-grit solution.
  • High-grit (with a grit number between 4000-8000) are excellent choices for regular kitchen and food processing use.

If you want to add a wet sharpening stone into your toolkit but have yet to experience the benefits or craftsmanship involved with their use, feel free to speak to the friendly and knowledgeable team at Zanvak. Highly trained and equipped, we can recommend the perfect solution from blades to toolkits and emulsions that will best suit your everyday needs.
