For those that want a better quality whetstone, look into the shapton ones...they're by no means high end ones, but much better than the double sided generic crap.

Unless you're crazy about getting your knife to the sharpest possible edge probably the 400/ 1000 would be a good option for you. I use a natural oil stone myself instead of the ceramic type so I can't speak to this specific stone probably 400 would be if you badly damaged your knife. The 1000 grit should put a decent finished edge on your blade. A lot of it is in the technique, but you'll learn.

I've looking to buy a set of good whetstones, but these look to be of questionable quality. Anyone have any experience with this product?

I don't have this one, I do have a similar one though. It works OK. The "flattening stone" looks worthless though. A proper flattening stone needs to be larger than the stone you're trying to flatten or you'll just cause a slope on it.

You mean I can actually BUY a knife sharpener?

To think, I've been using the bottom of a coffee cup for years....

Picked one of these up as a beginner stone and the grits are pretty inconsistent, and the accessories are pretty useless. I recommend picking up a KING KW65, still a combination stone (1000/6000), but it is a much better grit then the typical generic stones you find on Amazon.

A knife sharpener is different than a strop or steel. One actually removes material the other straightens the edge. If you've been only using a piece of ceramic for years your knife isn't all that sharp, might be sharp enough for your use but could definitely use a real sharpening if it's a decent knife. As the blade edge is worn down through use and needs a regrind to get that edge back and no reasonable amount of stropping will fix that.

The biggest takeaway for a beginner knife sharpener is probably the angle guide they include.

You can buy these separately on Amazon in bulk (they're consumables, so you'll eventually wear out the one you get in this set).

A cheap whetstone with the right angle technique will go way further than a premium $300+ whetstone with the wrong angle technique.

Also, make sure you use some kind of fluid. Most whetstones are soaked in water with additional water applied as needed, but a cheap one can be improved by also using honing oil.

Thanks for the reply. This set doesn't inspire confidence, honestly.

FJapanny.com recommends the King as well (https://www.japanny.com/pages/sel...ing-stones)

I have a whetstone but since I found ceramic honing rods I've never had to use my whetstone. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B06XHJH...XN6G131R1K

Already know people aren't going to want to hear this, but these are typical generic Chinese made low quality stones. Nowhere near the quality of a stone from a reputable stone maker like King, Shapton, or Suehiro. Entry level stones from these makers only cost $25-$50, I'd rather pay a little more to get a much better quality stone than save a few dollars and get something like this.

Thanks guys! Which sharpener or stones would be good to help me learn the correct angle(s)?

Get a Shapton, you won't regret it. I have 2 - one at home & one in my apocalypse cabin.
