Naniwa Chosera 800 Grit Japanese Whetstone Sharpening Stone, NO stand/base, 20cmx7cm surface, 2cm thick

This semi-coarse stone is perfect for grinding a new edge on your knife, and for working out nicks or cracks or other imperfections in old used/abused/damaged knives. Use this grade only when you regular maintenance and finishing isn't doing the trick anymore. It's relatively coarse and so will cut (remove metal) more aggressively and quickly than the higher grits often used in beginner stones/kits.

Naniwa Professional stones are widely considered the finest stones money can buy. They are the next generation of the superb Chosera stones, promising even faster cutting. 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 long-lasting, 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.
Do NOT soak them for a long time before use (5 minutes is plenty) and do NOT leave them soaking in water while you use other stones... in use, just splash more water on the stone as needed instead of prolonged and repeated soakings, otherwise hairline cracks can appear over time.

    I sharpen knives every day by hand on Japanese Water Stones so it is very important to me and to my customers to use the right products. Until recently I owned all of the Naniwa Chosera/Professional stones except the 800 grit stone. There are some important aspects to look for when choosing stones. Tactile feedback, how the stones actually feel when you draw an edge over them, are they so hard that you don't get any feedback at all ?. Another thing is how fast they dish, or wear out in the middle and of course, how they work, is the stone actually removing metal effectively and efficiently. The answer is yes to all of these for this 800 grit stone and in fact the feedback is very nice. I can't believe that I waited so long to buy one. Many people start their sharpening journey with one water stone and if that is your case the 1,000 grit Naniwa Professional is a perfect choice but this 800 grit is now in league with that stone for me. I have sharpened at least 40 knives on it now and I used an 800, 2,000 grit combination and the results are superb. Don't hesitate to grab this great water stone. As usual, it will show up at your address in a few days at most, fantastic service from Paul.
