Yes, Suehiro whetstones can be used on almost any type of knife, including chef's knives, pocket knives, and utility knives.

Some Suehiro stones need to be soaked in water for about 10-15 minutes before use. However, some models are splash-and-go. Always refer to the product instructions.

With proper care and maintenance, Suehiro whetstones can last for several years.

To use a Suehiro whetstone, follow these steps:

  • Soak the stone: Depending on the model, you might need to soak your stone in water for 10-15 minutes or until no more bubbles emerge. Some models are splash-and-go and require no soaking.
  • Secure the stone: Place the stone on a secure base or a damp cloth to prevent it from slipping.
  • Sharpen the knife: Hold the knife at the correct angle (typically around 15 degrees for Japanese knives and 20 degrees for Western knives). Slide the blade across the stone, applying light pressure and maintaining the angle.
  • Check your progress: Frequently check the blade for a raised burr, which indicates that the edge has been sufficiently sharpened.
  • Flip the knife: Once a burr has formed, repeat the process on the other side of the knife.
  • Hone the edge: Finally, use the finer side of the stone (if it's a dual-grit stone) to hone the blade, which will polish it and make the edge more durable.
