The Naniwa Super Stones are excellent whetstones, very reliable, forgiving, and not fragile. A GREAT choice for the beginner or casual home user who just wants good long-lasting stones that work great on a variety of knives. I use these SuperStone series at home and they're great. They're also easy to use: just splash-and-go, no need for soaking and in fact they should NOT be soaked.
Note: The boxes now say "Super Stone" instead of "Sharpening Stone" as pictured, and are now grey in colour. The old "Super Stones" were re-branded "Sharpening Stones" in 2015, but I think Naniwa finally realized that wasn't a very interesting name, so they've now changed it back to "Super Stone" which everyone knew and loved, so don't worry about it, they're the exact same great stones, just the packaging has changed (again)!!
Warranty: One-year warranty against manufacturing defects.
NOTE: These are full, long-lasting 2cm thick stones, not the cheaper (and thinner and so less long-lasting and cheaper and more fragile) versions some stores import!
