The Naniwa Super Stone is famous for its ability to create an unbeatable polished edge on steel. Order from our store in Pike Place Market, in-person or online.
The Naniwa Super Sharpening Stone with 5000 grit is a very fine grit. It is a popular final grit for knives that also works extremely well as a progression between 1000, 10000, or 12000 grit stones.
The unique resin bond of the Naniwa Super Stone allows it to be “splash-and-go”. This means that you don’t have to soak the stone before use. Just splash some water on top and you’re good to start sharpening.
The Naniwa Super Stone requires less flattening. It’s more hard-wearing than other stones and won’t dish or cup without some serious use. As an added plus, it doesn’t require flattening as often.
It has a higher concentration of abrasive particles than lower quality sharpening stones. This contributes to the speedy sharpening.
