10 items left

Naniwa Traditional super coarse 220 Grit Japanese Sharpening Stone, NO Stand, 21cm x 7cm surface, 2cm thick.

This super coarse stone is perfect for very quickly grinding a new edge on your knife, and for working out nicks or cracks or other imperfections in old used/abused/damaged knives. Use this grade only when you regular maintenance and finishing isn't doing the trick anymore. It's very coarse and so will cut (remove metal) quite aggressively, so use care.

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!

Traditional Stones

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 !

220 grit for taking dull to sharp

Worked on some very dull knives I pickup. Could not cut paper and after a several passes paper was no match.

Reshaping bevels etc
Excellent quality stone

An Excellent Stone

I bought this 220 together with a 1000 and a 2000. This stone has the perfect level of grit for repairing, reshaping and correcting blades while finishing off with a fine rough sharpen.
Extremely happy as the 220 turned out to be the perfect complementary base tool to the other finer grit stones I bought. Excellent quality.
