The Whetstone is a Fixed Pouch Item in Monster Hunter World (MHW). It allows Hunters wielding melee Weapon Types to maintain Sharpness and keep their Weapon's performance up.

 

A standard sized whetstone. Used to restore a Weapon's sharpness.

 

The Whetstone is given to Hunters by the Research Commission as part of their preparations for exploring the New World.

While in the field, the Whetstone can be used from the Item Bar with square-ps4-controls-small / x-xbox-controls / E while a melee (Blademaster) Weapon Type is equipped. See Loadouts for information on configuring Item storage and use.

Using a Whetstone will restore a Weapon to its maximum Sharpness (including boosts from the Handicraft Skill,) allowing it to maintain maximum damage output and avoid bouncing off Monster hides. Normally this requires about 7 seconds, but the process can be shortened to as low as 4 seconds with the Speed Sharpening Skill granted by Grinder Jewels and several Armor pieces.

An alternative to the Whetstone is the one-use Whetfish Fin, which also fully restores Sharpness and takes 5 seconds to use, but are of limited supply and must be gathered by fishing for Whetfish.

Additionally, other Skills can be used to modify a Weapon's Sharpness or the effect of Sharpness on performance. These include:
