Naniwa Sharpening Stone - #600 [Professional Stone series]
Naniwa Professional #600 grit whetstone is used for coarse sharpening of damaged knives (eg, broken tip, chips or nicks in the blade), or for totally blunt blades.
The Professional Stone is the new high-tech line of sharpening stones from Naniwa. It is the hardest Japanese sharpening stone, therefore, wear is absolutely minimal and the lifespan maximum. It does not only sharpen well, but also sharpens quickly. Experienced users can really feel a difference with these stones.
The secret that makes these high-quality whetstones different from other whetstones is that they are bonded with magnesium and not resin. They have greater density of finely graded abrasive particles per unit of surface area than resin-bonded stones. Being harder, they wear slowly and will take much longer to develop a hollow. There is no need to exert any force while sharpening.
👉 This is a splash and go stone and only needs to have its surface moistened slightly with water. If you do soak it, just briefly dip it in water for no more than 2-3 minutes.
🚩 Naniwa Professional Stones require more care than your average stone. When you are done with sharpening, just let them air dry so they can dry evenly. Do not expose them to heat. Store the stones only after they are completely dry in a dry, dark place. They should NOT be left to soak in water for prolonged periods and must be stored dry. Ignoring this advice may result in hairline cracks developing in the stone or the bonding material leaching out of the stone.
For easier sharpening, we recommend purchasing a Stone Holder (Sink Bridge) to ensure mess-free and a stable position of the stone during sharpening.

Knife Sharpening Guide
The advantage of sharpening with a whetstone is that by using the correct techniques, we can achieve a remarkable sharpness of the blade. However, it is necessary to learn the correct technique. If you are new to knife sharpening, then don't skip on our Beginner's Guide to Knife Sharpening. We cover all the basics and teach you how to properly sharpen a kitchen knife.
Yesterday I cooked a Chinese meal for a couple of friends: a main mie dish and verious side dishes. Preparing all the vegetables and meat with this Santoku was a joy: effiortless and precise cutting. Probably this inspired me to be as precise in the cooking itself, because we all agreed that it was the best version of this recipe I ever made.
This is the second knife I purchased from SharpEdges. The first one - a Yoshida kiritsuke 135 mm black HAP-40 is also very good. I like the (almost) minimalistic simple but (almost) perfect finish of these Yoshida blades and handle.
All in all I regret that I did not discover your shop earlier. I already have a nice collection of other Japanese knives with different steels and shapes. No need on the short term for replacements or filling some gap. But who knows?
Delivery by DHL Express from Ljubljana to the Netherlands is okay but not perfect. Oh well. Who cares?
Thanks guys for the good service, the European sense of humour and the - especially that - great products.
Well received and everything in great condition, great knife bag and the blade covers fits perfectly... Thanks
Ciao, ho acquistato questo coltello per tagliare la pasta che faccio in casa. Premetto che sono mancino per cui gran parte dei coltelli giapponesi faccio fatica a trovarli. Il coltello è piacevole ma non propriamente da mancini. Un saluto
Very special handle,nice!
I just received my Yoshida Hamono ZDP189 santoku and I am over the moon with it. It was a hefty purchase, but well worth it. I’m currently restoring my knife collection since my previous one was stolen. This is a wonderful addition to my new collection.
Nice wrapped and really safe, amazing knife as a Santoku I had bought and really comfortable to use for whole day prep in the professional kitchen.
I purchased a knife from this website, unfortunately the knife was not of my liking, they provided a return label for me, then Fedex lost the package and it was a mess, lots of calls and emails but sharpedgeshop was always professional and gave me a full refund, they always responded to my emails quick and were very professional.
During the Purchasing process and a year later when I wanted to have something repaired, the service has been outstanding. Prompt responses and working with me to find the right solution.
Beautiful blade and handle. Thanks Sharp Edge!
Will be buying from here again due to the fact that the customer service made me feel like no matter what I'd have everything I needed and be getting my money's worth. They care about your experience and also have brilliant products
Knife was bought as a gift and the receiver loves it. They were responsive when emailed a question and the knife arrived fairly quickly.
It was a pleasure to shop here, so much information and good advice to help you find what you are looking for, pair that with exceptional service and communication and you have a shop who is dedicated and passionate about what they do. Highly rated and thank you
I ordered a knife for a friend with custom engraving and the customer support went above and beyond to help make sure I received the product I asked for. They were quick, friendly, and considerate, and shipped the knife extremely quickly. When a part of the Saya was damaged during delivery I received a replacement (several just in case) the next day!
The knife itself looks great, is nice and sharp, and is exactly what I had hoped to order. Will definitely order again for myself.
I'm really satisfied with the quality of the knife. A great product. And the customer service was great. I have a very small thing to share and it’s not a complaint at all. The knife was a gift and overall the packing is okay. But the knife box was a little bit low quality and i hope that would be okay with lots of customers and if there is an option to buy a little bit higher quality box, it would be very nice. Thank you.
Prompt and reliable team at “Sharp Edge”. I received my item promptly and was well packaged. I had a query about the handle before I purchased this knife. The team at Sharp Edge actually went to the trouble of doing a test and gave me an answer in four days.(I asked them about the suitability of composite handles for sanitising in hot water). All Is good!
