Naniwa 8000 Grit Waterstone
The Naniwa sharpening stone is an exciting new Japanese waterstone from Naniwa. They have upgraded their process to make the old Super Stones even better. The tighter controls of grit particle size far exceeds the old standers employed by Naniwa resulting in a stone that has superior uniformity and therefore cuts more smoothly and cleanly.
Like all Waterstones these stones require water, but unlike traditional Japanese stones these do not require soaking ahead of time. To use these new stones simply apply a little water to the surface and your ready to sharpen.
This stone is extremely fine and a wonderful final stage for most edge tools. We only recommend using this after the 2000 or finer grit stones.
