Grit: One-side 400 | Second side 800
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 Combination Water Sharpening Stone features double the utility of a traditional stone. A 400 grit surface is for knife edges that are not damaged or allowed to get too dull between sharpening.
The 800 grit surface of the sharpening stone is a medium coarse grit. It’s useful for when you need something a bit coarser than 1000 grit, but don’t want to remove too much metal.
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.
