Where to buy Whetstone in RDU?

burgeoningfoodie | Mar 6, 201507:40 AM

Looking to start sharpening my own knives at home and to that end would like to purchase a whetstone. So a few questions..

1. I'm aiming for dual sided and so what grades should I be looking for?
2. Where should I purchase?
3. Let's say I am perpendicular to the stone, do I draw the blade backwards against the stone or forward? I have seen both and neither really states that it is the correct way?
