NANIWA "Super Stone" 8,000 GRIT:
The 8,000 grit Super Stone is a perfect followup to the 5,000 grit stone and is also the perfect launching point for natural stone edge finishing. It can also be used as the final finishing stone and after stropping, leaves a really comfortable shaving edge.
Based in Osaka Japan, Naniwa produces some of the absolute finest synthetic water sharpening stones worldwide. Recognized for years by razor honers for their superior quality, longevity and incredible edges, they are also revered for knife sharpening.
Naniwa's "Super Stone" line of resin bonded abrasive hones are "splash & go", meaning they do not need to be soaked in water before use; just add a little water to the surface and get to work! The resin bonded composition also means that they are longer lasting and don't need to be flattened as often.
As with all water stones, the surface should be initially and periodically flattened for sharpening accuracy. The Atoma diamond plates available in our shop do that job very well.
