Use and maintenance
Before you use the stone we recommend submerging it a couple minutes before use. As such you end up with better results and the stone will last even longer. Allow the stone to slowly dry after use. Don't place it in a hot sun, or on the heater!
Secure the sharpening stone between your fingers and place it on the edge. Move the sharpening stone over the edge with small circular movements. Try to keep the movements small. As such you also make sure the stone doesn't slip from your hand.
