4 Must-Have Knife Sharpeners for Your Kitchen

Are you noticing that your kitchen knives are looking a tad dull? Are they not cutting food as well as they used to? If so, a knife sharpener might be in order.

Knife sharpeners, such as whetstones, honing rods, and 3-stage sharpeners let you safely sharpen your blades from the comfort of your own home kitchen or in the restaurant. You can find them in a variety of styles and sizes; which one you choose will likely depend on your own preferences, available space in the kitchen, and on how much you can afford to spend.

Here are four of the best whetstones and knife sharpeners that you can use to revive your knives.

1000/6000 Grit Whetstone Combo

Hand-crafted with a material built to last, the 1000/6000 grit whetstone combo gives you a coarse #1000 grit side that can revive a dull blade. Flip it over to the #6000 grit side for a soft, smooth polish that gives the blade a longer lifespan.

Included with this package is a guide to help you understand your angles while you learn how to sharpen your blades. There is also a flattening stone, a non-slip whetstone rubber base, and a bamboo non-slip base for you to use.

3000/8000 Grit Whetstone Combo

If you're slightly more advanced with sharpening, the 3000/8000 combo grit whetstone is a solid option. The #3000 grit side is a middle grit soaking stone with enough coarseness to make a dull knife feel like new again. If you want your blade to be super sharp, use the #8000 side to give it a nice polish and fast cutting speed.
