Naniwa Traditional Japanese Sharpening Stone, 1000 grit - T-211

4 items left

Naniwa Traditional fine 1000 Grit Japanese Sharpening Stone, NO Stand, 21cm x 7cm surface, 2cm thick.

This semi-fine stone is used for prepping a final edge. This will smooth out the initially rough edge left by by a coarse stone or will return the burr for final finish with a finer stone.

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: This is the higher-end Traditional 1000-grit stone (T-211). If you see other stores listing a Traditional 1000-grit # T-210, that is a cheaper, lower-quality version which is less dense (it has less abrasive powder) and so cuts much more slowly. Naniwa considers the T-210 suitable for home use only, whereas this T-211 that we sell is suitable for home and professional use.

Warranty: One-year warranty against manufacturing defects.

Great stone, fantastic value

Cuts very fast, dishes slowly, leaves a good, aggressive edge. Paul is correct that it only needs a short soak, but I find it needs extra splashes of water quite frequently as you sharpen. The best 1000 grit stone at this price point, and worth considering over the Shapton Pro. And in case you're wondering, I have not seen any other vendor in Canada carry the T211 model.

Eric Williamson
An Excellent Stone

Bought this 1000 together with a 220 and 2000. This 1000 is the perfect middle stone grit for effeciently and smoothly working a fine sharpen.
It cuts effectively and produces a high quality sharpened edge. Exactly as expected.
