Naniwa Aotoishi "Green Brick of Joy" 2K Grit Japanese Whetstone Sharpening Stone, NO Stand, 21cm x 7cm surface, 5.5cm 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.

This is a "non-series" stone, so it's not really a Super Stone, Pro, or whatever... it's very thick, and it just has a certain something to it that many serious knife sharpening experts love, hence the "Green Brick of Joy" nickname!

A 5-minute soak prior to use is perfect for this stone (it's not a true splash-and-go like the Super Stones and Pro Stones). Don't leave it soaking for hours or more though.

Warranty: 90-day warranty against manufacturing defects.

    I recently started to stone-sharpen my knives, and wanted to see why this 2000-grit stone was nicknamed "The Green Brick of Joy"… It seemed like a good complement to my trio of Naniwa 400-1000-5000 Super Stones. Well, I'd say after using this stone, the feeling of being in nirvana when using it justifies the nickname well….

    This is a big and very thick stone - it's safe to say that it'll last me a lifetime (hey - that was the justification I used on my spouse to purchase it!). It's really odd when you use it - it grinds and puts an edge on a knife like a 1000-grit stone can, but with proper technique, it will polish a and finish a knife's edge like a 5000-grit stone can. It's ideal to used instead of a honing rod, or to simply and quickly tweak a blade every week or two. I LOVE using this stone!
