Suehiro Whetstone Accessories | ES-80 Silicone Whetstone Tray

Made from high-quality solid silicone rubber, this great little "holding sheet" acts as both a tray (to help contain water and debris) as well as an anti-slip sharpening base. You can place a stone directly into the tray, or a whetstone on top of a base or rack. It may seem small and simple at first glance, but it makes the world of difference when sharpening.

Japanese Sharpening Stones (Whetstones)

The consensus for sharpening Japanese kitchen knives, as well as Japanese woodworking tools, is the use of a whetstone. Dry grinding can affect temper (effectively ruining your knife or tool) and diamond plates are often too aggressive (removing too much material). 
All Japanese whetstones will require flattening after use, no matter what type of stone, or the style of your sharpening, all whetstones will begin to dish over time. We recommend a ceramic flattening stone, or diamond plate for this task. For more info, check out Selecting a Japanese Whetstone
