Welcome to Japanny - Best Japanese Knife!
Naniwa manufactures superb Japanese waterstones intended to sharpen knives. What makes these waterstones unique is that they don’t require soaking prior sharpening, unlike the conventional Japanese waterstones. Just sprinkle a little water to the surface and you’re ready to sharpen!
Japan made Naniwa stones are consistently graded, from their #220 grit to #12,000 grit stones and work with hard steels like A2 or D2 as well as other stainless alloys. Naniwa stones are resin-bond made. Resin-bond allows higher level of roughness resulting to quick sharpening and does not need soaking.
We highly recommend these waterstones from Naniwa!
Specifications Brand: Lobster Size: 200 x 70 x 25mm Use & Precaution
This stone does not require soaking. Sprinkle a little water only when sharpening. As a general rule, never soak stones with #3000 grits and higher in water. After use, let the stone dry thoroughly. Returning a stone into its box while still wet or damp will result in molding and might decrease in quality.
