We have a massive amount of Edge Pro products so we figured it would be good to have a whole section on how to use the machine and what to use on it.

How long does an edge pro stone last?

Hi Mark, how long do you get for life of the stone on the Edge Pro,

Have looked up a bunch of the freehand / edge pro, and leaning for the edge pro, I don't have the time / skill to make sure it is flawless of the bat. I think I will end up doing it by hand, but not for a while.

Also what extra stones would you recommend, some people are saying need up to a 6000 grit for a Japanese knife, others 10,000?

Also what other kit / accessories would you order?

Also Also ;) What meat cleaver would you recommend, need something for chicken bones, doing about 5lbs every other week

Thanks muchly

Paul

The stones will last for over a hundred knives for the lower grit ones and more for the higher grit ones. That's my guess.

This kit gives you all the stones you need:

This cleaver is good for bones:

Thanks! What would you recommend for sharpening the cleaver?

If you have an edge pro that will work for the cleaver.
