Imanishi Kitayama stone 8000
I find myself reaching for this stone to finish most carbon steel knives that come in for sharpening. I love the feedback, the cutting feel, and the mirror polish you get from this stone. For a finishing stone that is under $100 I give this stone a solid 10/10, I love it!!
Care for your whetstone:
-This stone only requires a splash of water to start, and the same during the sharpening process.
-Keep stone flat with a truing stone.
-Keep stone clean with nagura stone.
-Wipe stone clean of excess water, dry at room temperature.
-Store at room temp. Keep away from hot and freezing temperatures.
