NANIWA "Professional Stone" (previously known as Chosera) 1,000 GRIT:
Excellent for restoring damaged and neglected edges, the 1,000 grit "Professional Stone" is a fast cutting work horse and well loved bevel setter for razors and knives. It can quickly refine a bevel and its extra cutting power makes quick work of hard steels. It leaves a refined edge which is ready to be polished by higher grit stones.
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 "Professional 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.
