The King K-80 Combination sharpening stone is a sharpening stone that is ideal for higonokami, kitchen knives, carving knives, garden sickles, or other blades. The #250 and #1000 combination offers both a rough grain for fixing nicks in a blade, and a medium grain for ensuring a sharp cutting edge. The stone is bigger than the companion K-40, but is still slim enough to store easily. It comes packaged in a cardboard box. We include instructions for its use with your purchase.
Dimensions: 205mm x 50mm x 25mm
