The King NEO-ST2 stainless steel sharpening stone is specifically designed for stainless steel blades, as they need a slightly lower grit than carbon steel blades to keep a sharp edge. The #800 grit stone is for all types of stainless steel and feels very smooth to the touch. It allows you to sharpen Japanese and non-Japanese knives using a whetstone. The stone is a handy size for kitchen knives and comes with a base for easy use on any surface. It comes packaged in a cardboard box. We include instructions for use with your shipment. The NEO-ST2 is a splash-and-go stone and does not need to be soaked in water before use.
Dimensions: 210mm x 73mm x 25mm (with base)
