Whetstones are far too primitive. One using a soaking stone may as well be a caveman knapping a piece of obsidian on pumice or sharpening on the cave floors. I only use an electromagnetic fusion-powered laser, launched by a large scale particle accelerator. Now, you may wonder how a process that reaches temperatures will not simply vaporise a knife? Well, the plasma laser is separated by 10 microns of evaporative buffer space, which is the metallic material that is removed by the laser. To prevent further melting and untempering, a stream of superchilled noble gases is beamed at 50% the speed of light just at the buffer area to prevent unwanted temperature issues. This leaves an edge equivalent to finishing on a 0.0001 micron whetstone.
