Previously known as the The Naniwa Super Stone, they gained fame as a hard-wearing, splash-and-go stone that created an unbeatable polished edge on steel. Sharpeners fell in love with them for being so user-friendly and such a good value.

The Naniwa Advance Super Stones come in two varieties, the S1 and the S2. They are exactly the same except for thickness. The S2 Advance Super Stones are 20mm thick. The S1 Advance Super Stones are half that at 10mm thick.

Both the S1 and S2 Advance Super Stones are 210mm long and 70mm wide (about 8-1/4" x 2-3/4").

Naniwa S2 Advance Super Stones are made with a resin bond. This resin bonding gives the Advance Super Stones their unique attributes:

  • Splash and Go
    Resin bonded Super Stones don't require soaking in water prior to use. Splash some water on the top of the stone, and it is ready to go.
  • Less Flattening
    Resin bonded Super Stones are harder wearing than many other water stones. S2 Super Stones won't dish or cup as quickly and will need less flattening less often.
  • Higher Concentration of Abrasive
    Resin bonded Super Stones have a high concentration of abrasive particles which contributes to speedy sharpening.

Available in 7 Grits

Customize your sharpening tool kit with just the right combination of stones:

  • 400 Coarse Grit - Green
    A great coarse stone for edges that are not damaged or allowed to get extremely dull between sharpenings.
  • 800 Medium Coarse Grit - Peach
    A stone for when you need something a bit coarser than 1000, but don't want to remove too much.
  • 1000 Medium Grit - Blue
    An excellent follow up to a 220 or 400 stone or as a starting stone for not very dull edges. Very popular choice as a workhorse stone.
  • 3000 Extra Fine Grit - Red
    A good final stone for a slightly toothy edge on knives or a nice progression between the 1000 and 8000 stones.
  • 5000 Very Fine Grit - Light Blue
    A popular final grit for knives that also works very well in progression between the 1000 and the 10,000 or 12,000 stones.
  • 8000 Extremely Fine Grit - Light Yellow
    A popular final stone for woodworking tools or for smooth cutting knives.
  • 10,000 Extremely Fine Grit - Light Green
    Slightly finer than the 8000, a wonderful final stage for very smooth cutting knives and tools.
