Kagami
Ultra FINE

THE ULTIMATE
LEVEL OF SHARPNESS

What is the sharpest possible? We asked ourselves this question and answered it once and for all. With our HORL® Kagami whetstone, we married our HORL® sharpening method with the expertise of traditional Japanese sharpening experts, opening the door to a completely new level of sharpness.

SHARP, SHARPER,
MIRROR-SHARP

After intensive research and countless tests on knife steels of all degrees of hardness, we found that a matchless mirror-like sharpness can be achieved with a wide range of knives. Whether made of classic German kitchen knife steel, high-quality Damascus or carbon steel, you can take your knives to a new level of sharpness with the HORL® Kagami.

Using the HORL® Kagami after grinding and the HORL fine and extra fine whetstones, you can achieve an incredible mirror sharpness that sets new standards in terms of appearance and cutting ability.

1. Sharpen your knife

Make sure that the blade is also free of any burr. Fully use all of the HORL® Premium Sharpness Set.

2. Use HORL® Kagami dry

Further sharpen your blade for at least 5 minutes each side until mirror-sharp.

3. Use HORL® Kagami wet

Finish off with the HORL® Kagami slightly dampened and sharpen for one minute each side.

Important: 
Clean the blade and the whetstone between each stage with a soft cloth to avoid grinding waste particles in, allowing a mirror-like edge to form.
