  • Soak your whetstone for a few minutes, to ensure it is saturated with water. Suehiro whetstones typically need to soak for less time than other brands.
  • Place your sickle on a hard and secure surface, with the sharpened side of the blade facing up.
  • Firmly holding your whetstone, run it along the length of the blade, while making a back-and-forth pushing motion.
  • Repeat until a burr forms on the blade.
  • Flip the sickle over, and briefly run the whetstone along the blade until the burr is removed.
  • Repeat the process with a medium grit whetstone (1000-2000) for sharpening, and a very fine grit stone (4000+) for finishing.
