Naniwa Super Stone 8000 Grit Japanese Whetstone Sharpening Stone, NO Stand, 21cm x 7cm surface, 2cm thick.
An excellent super-fine stone for putting a highly polished edge on your edged tools, from knives to razors.
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: This is a full 2cm thick stone. It has been brought to our attention that other vendors are importing the cheaper 1cm thick version and then not always specifying the thickness on their web sites. Those stones are cheaper, and being half as thick will be more prone to breaking and will not last nearly as long as these normal full-thickness stones! We do NOT and have never imported or sold those cheaper 1cm thick versions of these stones. Be sure to verify photos and part numbers... the S1- are the thin ones, the S2- are the thick ones.
Warranty: One-year warranty against manufacturing defects.
