    Instructions

    1. Select the proper stone to use.
      COARSE – Very aggressive and removes lots of metal during the sharpening process. Use to set a new sharp cutting edge on a very dull or damaged blade.
      MEDIUM – Not as aggressive as the COARSE stone, but does remove moderate amounts of metal. Use for next step after starting with COARSE stone, or as a starting point for somewhat dull blades that still have a consistent cutting edge but need to be sharpened.
      FINE – Removes the least amount of metal. Sharpens and polishes the cutting edge at the same time. Use for finishing the cutting edge to razor sharpness.
    2. Put a small amount of Honing Solution on your stone. Don't use a lot of lubricant as a small amount goes a long way. Using a Natural Stone without a lubricant or water will damage and clog your stone. It protects the stone and the cutting edge of the knife or tool by washing away the particle of stone and metal created during the sharpening process. If necessary, water can be used as a substitute.
    3. To insure the proper sharpening angle on your knife, place the yellow Smith's Angle Guide at the end of your stone. This shows you the proper angle we recommend to use in order to obtain the sharpest edge. Next, place your blade flat on the Angle Guide at the end of the stone. Now you are ready to begin the sharpening process.
    4. Push the blade away from you just like you are trying to carve a thin slice off the top of the stone. Don't be afraid to use pressure against the stone while sharpening since it will not damage the stone or your knife. Repeat this pushing stroke 3 or 4 times. Remember, try to keep the same approximate sharpening angle all the time, since this is the key to obtaining the sharpest edge.
    5. To sharpen the other side of your knife, simply place your blade at the opposite end of your Smith sharpening stone and repeat the above steps, but instead of pushing the knife away from you, pull it towards you. Continue to sharpen until you feel that your blade is truly sharp.

    Care:

    Cleaning your stones will keep the pores free of stone and metal particles. After each use, the Arkansas stones should be cleaned by scrubbing vigorously with water, liquid soap, and a stiff nylon brush.

    HONING SOLUTION WARNING: IF INGESTED, DRINK SEVERAL GLASSES OF WATER TO DILUTE. DO NOT INDUCE VOMITING UNLESS DIRECTED TO DO SO BY MEDICAL PERSONNEL. NEVER GIVE ANYTHING BY MOUTH TO AN UNCONSCIOUS PERSON. GET MEDICAL ATTENTION.

    I got into using chef knives around a year ago. I do own 3 chef knives and I’ve used it on two of my knives. At first, I was a little bit sketched out because I know majority of the stone sharpeners are almost 80-100 from a Japanese company. But at the same time, I’ve heard good reviews. I was lucky enough to pick it up at my local Lowe’s shop. This Arkansas Stone Sharpener is legit! It sharpened my knife to scary sharp with the help of my other tool to polish knives. For around 30 bucks, you can’t go wrong !! I even sharpened machetes , worked like a charm!
    It is a bit small especially with the machete, but atleast you can still work around it.

    Excellent set of stones

    • convenience
    Cons:
    Have had my stones for about 6 months and have had excellent results with them. Anyone who ruins knives on them has no idea what they are doing. You will not sharpen a dull knife in 5 or 6 passes. Start with the coarsest stone and soak it with water. Keep the angle as close to 20 degrees as possible. Make about 10 strokes on one side, then the other. Keep the stones WET and rinse them occasionally. Work your way through all 3 stones ending with the finest, making about 20 strokes per side. If you sharpen a knife regularly, after every few uses, you can just use the fine stone. Never let knives get so dull that they won't cut.

    Great stones and great customer service!

    • Every stone I need in one package.
    Cons:
    • None.
    I wore my first Tri-Stone one out after 15 years and bought another one to replace it a couple years ago. Had a small problem with one stone cracking this year.
    Customer service was wonderful and is sending out a replacement.
    This level of service is rare these days.
    Thank you very much!

    Cons:
    Ruined my knife, I fallowed the directions and had to constantly clean the stone. Plus the stone sucked up all the honing solution.
    Don't buy this.
