Suehiro Combination Stone - #1000/#3000
The Cerax line of stones is one of the best among mid-range whetstones. We are talking about medium hard stones, which quickly create a slurry during sharpening - the resulting grains, newly produced on the surface of the stone, contribute to the speed with which the knives are sharpened. As they form this paste faster, these stones also wear out a little quicker during the process of sharpening, so they will need to be flattened more often. They do not need to be soaked in water for a long time and can be used to sharpen any kind of steel, japanese or not.
The Suehiro combination sharpening stone #1000/#3000 grit is an excellent stone for home sharpening use. It removes material very effectively, as it quickly creates a paste during sharpening to help, thus making the process easier. The next step is to use Suehiro Rika #5000 stone.
Soak for at least 10 minutes before use. As the stone wears out faster, regular flattening is essential. We recommend Atoma diamond sharpening stone 140 or Naniwa flattening stone.
This whetstone comes with a non-slip base stand for safer sharpening, preventing the stone from moving around.
