Naniwa Traditional Japanese Sharpening Stone, 2000 grit - T-420

3 items left

Naniwa Traditional Fine 2000 Grit Japanese Sharpening Stone, NO Stand, 21cm x 7cm surface, 2cm thick.

This fine stone is a good choice for finishing off German knives, or for regular maintenance of any other German or Japanese knife where you don't necessarily want a super polished edge. This is the smoothest many people will ever need to use, especially for German knives or any knife made with standard stainless steel.

These "Traditional" series stones are high quality and affordable! They require a good soak (20 minutes will do) prior to use, but please do NOT store them in water. They cut quickly and have a nice feel... they are neither worse or better than other series, only different... some people prefer the more traditional feel, give one a try!

Note: Naniwa has re-branded these (again) as "Naniwa Standard" for 2024. The stones are identical, just the branding/name and packaging has changed (again). You may receive the new or old packing as we receive and make the transition to new stock from the factory in Japan.

Warranty: One-year warranty against manufacturing defects.

Traditional Stones are great !

You have the look and the feel, of those old style stones. It’s a pleasure to sharpen a knife on. Easy to start up, just soak for 20 mins. You can start to set up your area for sharpening as it soaks. Even though we have our main go to stones at home already, I decided to do it right, and get a selection of these. I bought the 220, 1000, 2000, and the Whetstone Holder. I had already purchased the 6000 from Paul’s before. Same great service this time around, just like last time. Very fast ! Surprisingly ! Excellent to deal with. Thank you Paul for providing me with such a high quality stone, and for such an affordable price ! Even though my review is supposed to be on just this particular one, my review is with all these Traditional Stones. They’re all great ! Buy this one, and you’ll love it. Buy a set of them if you can, or buy them over time. The main thing is, treat yourself to buying these quality stones that would last most, a life time. Thank you Paul’s again !

A Beautiful Stone

Excellent stone. Works well on both my stainless knives and my carbon steel chef knives. Leaves an excellent edge fine enough to do almost all tasks without a higher grit stone.

An Excellent Stone

I bought this 2000 together with a 220 and 1000. This 2000 is really an ultra fine edge polishing stone. I finished off my Grohmann DH Russel knife with it and my survival knife from the same company-- both with carbon blades. This grit level is really the max needed on such outdoor knives. Happy with this purchase it complements perfectly the two other stones I bought. Excellent quality.
