More information...

In most cases a sharpening stone is comprised of sharpening grains and a binding agent. The grains have cutting edges which enables them to sharpen your knife. As soon as a whetstone is used little pieces of the grains break off, revealing a new cutting edge. The higher the number, the finer the grain. Stones with coarse grains (up to grain 400) can be used to shape the blade of a blunt knife. You can subsequently take care of the fine finish with a stone with a smaller grain.

A Japanese whetstones should always be used with water. Some stones merely need to be submerged in water while others need to soak in the water for a couple of minutes. While you are sharpening your knives a small layer of water should be left on the stone.
