Grains in a whetstone

A whetstone is a combination of sharpening grains and a binding agent in most cases. The only 100% natural product is Ardennes Coticules. The sharpening grains have cutting edges which enable them to sharpen. As soon as a sharpening stone is used, little particles of the sharpening grain break off, which generates a new cutting edge. Most whetstones for kitchen knives use aluminium dioxide as a sharpening medium. The higher the figure, the lower the grain. Stones with a coarse grain (up to grain 400) are used to shape the fold (the really cutting part of a knife) of a blunt knife. The fine finishing is then done with a stone with a smaller grain.
