Naniwa Sharpening Stone - #1000 [Traditional Stone series]
Stone with a grit of #1000 is used for general sharpening. Suitable for Japanese and German kitchen knives, razors and carpentry tools. This stone can serve as a starting stone to achieve good sharpness even with medium quality knives, used for slicing meat, seafood and vegetables. Granulation stone #3000 is the recommended next step.
Sharpening stone (whetstone) from Japanese producer Naniwa enables fast and efficient sharpening of Japanese knives. The main difference between the Traditional and Sharpening/Super Stone series is the soaking time - we soak the Traditional line stones in water for about 20-30 minutes before sharpening. All their other series are splash-and-go stones.
The advantage of sharpening with a whetstone is that by using the correct technique we can achieve a remarkable sharpness of the blade, the disadvantage, however, is that it is necessary to learn the correct technique.
For easier sharpening, we recommend purchasing the Sink bridge to ensure mess-free and a stable position of the stone during sharpening.
