This "snow white" stone is great for finishing Japanese steel. It leaves a nice mirror polish, gives a silky smooth cutting feel, and results in longer lived edges.
Care for your water stone:
- This stone only requires a splash of water to start, and the same during the sharpening process "splash and go".
- Keep this stone flat with a truing stone.
- Keep this stone clean with a nagura stone.
- Wipe stone clean when done.
- Dry at room temp.
- Store in a cool area away from any heat source.
