Use this fine grit ceramic stone after sharpening with a coarse and medium grit to remove any scratches on the surface or to simply realign a slightly dull edge for a razor sharp finish. Using a fine grit stone to polish your edge can actually help to make carbon steel knives more rust proof. Shapton ceramic stones should not be soaked, making knife sharpening more convenient.
