Grit: One-side 1000
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.
This super stone is the best bang for your buck. It provides you with an excellent follow up to a 220 or 400 grit stone. It also happens to be a great starting stone for blades that aren’t too dull. It’s a popular choice for a workhorse stone.
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.
