This stone is my go to stone! Everyone gets caught up on grit ratings. I can get a better edge with this 10,000 Grit than most with a 12,000 or 16,000! I have used all the stones available to a Honemeister and I always go back to this 10K. For years I used the 16K Shapton and 12K Naniwa and the second I tried this 10K I knew the others were History. So if you never tried this 10K I would HIGHLY recommend that you try it. Most people say "Phil why do you always undersell yourself! Any time I can save my clients money I do, and the reality is that this $80 stone can compete with any finisher on the market. Don't get me wrong, I still Love my Belgian Coticules, but if you are looking for a new addition to your stones or want to only have one for a good price look no further!
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!
