Resurrect your collection's corpses and keep that keen edge keen.

The dullness of one knife is the kryptonite of any cutting experience. It is not only inefficient but also dangerous to mess around with a flat blade. To resurrect your kitchen knife and maintain its sharpness, a whetstone is your best bet, and this HDMD premium whetstone is built for that.

Made with aluminum oxide or known as corundum in its natural form. This premium whetstone is made under the technique to replicate traditional Japanese water stone. The stone is capable of sharpening all kinds of kitchen knives, from massive cleavers to delicate sushi knives, you name it, the whetstone delivers.

The HDMD premium whetstone comes with two sides for different sharpening purposes, understand the level of grit before getting into the sharpening session is essential:

  • 400 coarse grit: Fast removal of nicks and grits. Works best on a fairly damaged knife. While a coarse stone can quickly sharpen a dull blade, it can damage it if misused.
  • 1000 fine grit: Good metal removal rate. Best for giving a blade a sharp edge. Used for regular sharpening sessions.


  • Size: 17.8 x 6 x 3 cm / 7.01 x 2.36 x 1.18 in
  • Material: Aluminum oxide
  • Color: White & caramel

Use & care

✨ Easy steps on using a whetstone ✨

Step 01 Soak the HDMD whetstone in water for about 10 minutes to activate its sharpening properties.

Step 02 Place the whetstone on a stable surface and ensure it's clean and free from debris.

Step 03 Hold the knife at the recommended angle for sharpening, which varies depending on the type of knife or tool. For example, a typical chef's knife may be sharpened at a 15-20 degree angle, while a fillet knife may require a narrower angle.

Step 04 Apply moderate pressure and slide the blade across the whetstone in a smooth, sweeping motion.

Step 05 After a slurry develops on the stone and a burr forms on one side of the edge (usually after 10-15 strokes depending on the steel and the applied pressure), switch to the other side.

Step 06 Repeat the same motion on the opposite side to eliminate the burr, going back and forth until the burr is minimized.

Step 07 Continue alternating sides, maintaining consistent pressure, until the desired level of sharpness is achieved.

Step 08 Test the sharpness of the blade by gently slicing through a piece of paper or performing a tomato test.

Step 09 Rinse the knife to remove any residue, and dry it thoroughly.
