Naniwa Chosera 10,000 Grit Ultra-Fine Japanese Whetstone Sharpening Stone, NO Stand, 21cmx7cm surface (8.25"x2.75"), 3cm thick, with small Nagura 600-grit mud/slurry/cleaning stone

This ultra-fine stone is used for giving a knife a final polished edge. Most people consider this the finest polshing stone money can buy. It was originally developed by Naniwa for Japanese sword finishing, and for people finishing razors and injection needles, and so it's not really part of the Chosera line per-se, but was developed simply as the ultimate polishing stone, which is why it also comes with a different, high-end presentation box and inside the stone is wrapped in beautifully folded yellow linen.

Naniwa Chosera stones are widely considered the finest stones money can buy. They are artifical stones made with the magnesia bonding method. In terms of hardness they are slightly harder than the Super Stones, and because of the different bonding methods these "feel" harder and cut more quickly. They are very durable and will last MANY years (they're also 0.5cm thicker than Super Stones), but this extra hardness means that there is also more of a potential for cracking or chipping than with the Super Stones so be sure to air dry them and store in a cool, dry place and do NOT expose them to extremes of heat or cold (NO freezing!) or quick changes in temperature or humidity.

Note that these stones do NOT have bases (stands). I had many requests from my professional Japanese chef customers across North America who buy stones for me to start importing these without bases. The argument is that when put down on a dampened cloth (to prevent slipping) it will actually be MORE stable than any stand (the stands have feet, so there is less contact with the surface it rests on). They convinced me that the benefits really did outweigh any potential use that the stand may bring, and so from now on I'll only be importing stones without bases. If you need a base, I now carry a very high quality and heavy-duty "clamp" style stand (see below), and this is also handy to use in conjunction with the sink bridge also sold separately.
