They self clean when you flatten them.

I figured it out. Some soap and water and they clean quickly.

Don't use soap. Never use soap. Use only water and an abrasive. This happens automatically when you flatten the stones. I'm assuming you know that the stones need flattening.... yes? no? If no, you need a flattening medium.

Ohhh ok. Did not know that. Thank you for the information. I ordered an extra set of stones to have for spares and the silicon carbide media to flatten the stone. I don't know how to flatten them though.

Stones dish when they are used because the steel seldom touches the far ends. Although I've seen some ancient Arkansas stones that looked like the profile of a soup bowl and were used with some success, the bottom line is that the stones must be flat in order to hold a constant angle.

The silicon carbide, if it is in powder form, should work well. You will need a hard, flat surface though, like a granite reference plate or something. Here's what you can do inexpensively; Go to Home Depot or Lowes, borrow a carpenter's square from their tool department, and buy a square of ceramic tile (10" or greater) that passes the flat test. Then all you have to do is sprinkle some of that silicon carbide on the tile and rub the stone on it until it's flat. Make some X's in pencil on the stone first, and when they're gone the stone is flat.

I use a DMT XXC (extra extra coarse) diamond plate and flatten ALL of my stones under running water. Many people will say that the XXC should only be used to flatten coarse stones but it just ain't so. I use the XXC all the way to my 10k polishing stones with no issues whatsoever.

The DMT isn't cheap but it's a great flattener and will last for a long time.

Just a heads-up for anyone interested in this knife; CKtG carries this same knife for the same price but offers free shipping. And a discount is also available, too. I have ordered from Korin and they're a great store, but CKtG is a fantastic seller, with an amazing selection of stuff (more than Korin by far where knives are concerned). Plus, they're in Wisconsin, so if you're a grain-belter like me shipping is lightning fast. No, I'm not on the payroll! I'm just a satisfied customer. The owner, Mark Richmond, is a knowledgeable guy and and has even accommodated me with some special orders.

Thanks Rob for the heads up. I ordered from Mark the Sanotku of the Tojiro DP but forgot about this one. I will place my order as well for this one.

You're gonna love how it comes off your Edge Pro. The edge is okay OOTB but you'll be amazed at how it will cut fresh off the highest-grit EP stones.
