Naniwa Japanese water stones are hands down one of the best stones for sharpening a Straight Razor if not the best. Not only are they ultra fast cutters, but Naniwa has taken this stone to the next level and has copied the feel of a natural water stone. Because of this, the feedback is like no other man made stone on the market.
Naniwa Stones are resin bonded for fast cutting and ease. Unlike other stones, the Naniwa Super Stone does not need to be soaked. A simple splash of water over the surface of the stone will be sufficient.
The Naniwa Super Stones are able to handle any job, from repairing chips to touching up edges to their original sharpness. For optimal results, we recommend lapping before each use to avoid developing small chips. Always round off the edges, using 800 Grit wet/dry sandpaper works great!
