Detailed information

Product detailed description


Japanese water stones are known for their top-notch sharpening performance. The abrasive particles are quickly washed out by water, revealing new, sharp crystals and thus always providing a premium surface for sharpening any blade. During the sharpening, a so-called "slurry" is formed, which can also be created with the help of "Nagura" stones. This slurry increases the efficiency of the sharpening process. Japanese water stones should only be lubricated with water, never use oil. These stones can be soaked in water to increase sharpening performance, but never leave them in the water for a long time, as this can affect the bond of the crystals and lead to cracking.


Stone characteristics:

✅ Grit JIS: #1000
✅ For carving chisels and knives

✅ 2 stones included in the package
✅ Made in Japan


Which grit to choose?

For sharpening really dull or uneven blades, use stones with a low JIS number (Japanese classification for grit). The lower the number, the coarser the stone. Stones with a high JIS number are intended for final and fine sharpening or smoothing.


  • #120 to #600 JIS: for dull and uneven blades
  • #700 to #2000 JIS: for normal sharpening
  • #3000 to #5000 JIS: for fine sharpening of quality blades
  • #6000+ JIS: extremely fine stones for smoothing or removing scratches
