NANIWA "Super Stone" 5,000 GRIT:
Excellent for bringing back slightly dulled edges, the 5000 grit stone is a powerful yet refined middle grit stone, a perfect follow up to the Naniwa Super Stone or Professional 1,000 grit hone. Also great for correcting bevels when using the coarser stones are not needed.
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.
