This whetstone from Wusthof has a coarse grain side and one with a finer grain. The grey side of the stone (with the coarse grain) is suitable for removing small flaws and dents and to prepare the edge for honing. The green side (with the finer grain(240 / 800)) is used to hone the edge to the desired sharpness. Using gentle pressure, simply pull the edge of the blade in a 20-degree angle across the stone from the heel of the blade to its tip. Repeat this same procedure on the other side of the edge. Before each use, immerse the stone in water for 5 - 10 minutes. Always place the stone on a flat, slip-resistant surface, and use the entire surface of the stone when sharpening. This will ensure even wear of the stone over time.
This was a replacement for a smaller stone. It works much better than its predecessor.
This works better that my fancy, expensive electric sharpener. Awesome to have sharp knives when preparing my FoodNetwork recipies!
The whetstone was what my husband was looking for. It was a little pricey, but considering the brand (one of the best) it was worth it.
I love the item - absolutely love it. It puts a very fine edge on my knives.<br>The problem is with the shipping - they lost the first one, reshipped, then delivered the original. I am still waiting to return it - PO won't accept. I have spent literally an hour already trying to return it and still have it. Again, the item itself is wonderful.

Contrary to what you might think, a sharp knife is actually safer than a dull knife. The important thing to remember when chopping and cutting is to let the knife do the work for you. A sharp knife allows you to do that, but a dull knife requires you to exert more pressure to get the job done, which means your hand has a greater chance of slipping.
