The King Deluxe 1000 has always been the standard for users wanting a great quality, budget-friendly 1000 grit whetstone. It has excellent feedback and offers what most consider a true 1000 grit finish. It is slower cutting than Hyper 1000, and not as long-lasting. But it offers great value for money, and knife owners with knives no higher than 61 Rockwell would be well-served by the Deluxe 1000.

Pre-soak for 15 minutes before use, and apply water on surface during sharpening when needed. Rinse and wipe dry with a hand towel when done, and allow air dry at room temp. Do not leave in water.
How to clean:
If the stone’s performance is slowing down, or seems to be diminishing, you can clean using a rust eraser, nagura stone, dressing stone, or a flattening plate. Be sure to clean the entire surface of the whetstone when using any of these methods to ensure even wear of the whetstone’s surface.
