High quality stone from Naniwa removes steel quickly & effectively. We like this stone for prepping knives for a kasumi finish. It works very good for blending scratches, and bringing very dull Japanese knives back to life.
CARE FOR YOUR WHETSTONE:-This is a "splash and go stone", DOES NOT REQUIRE SOAKING!
