Naniwa Sharpening Stones

The Naniwa Sharpening Stone is an exciting new Japanese Waterstone from Naniwa. They recently upgraded their process to make the old Super Stone even better. The tighter controls of grit particle size exceed the old standards.

Generously Sized
Each stone measures 8 1/4" long, 2 3/4" wide and 3/4" thick. This is twice the thickness of the Naniwa Specialty Sharpening Stone which is otherwise the same. The Sharpening Stone is thick enough to provide many years of sharpening.

Fast Sharpening
These stones sharpen very quickly. With many of the modern steel alloys used in knives and tools, speed of sharpening can be an important factor when considering a sharpening stone. These stones work well on tough tool steels such as A2 or D2 and very hard stainless alloys popular in Japanese and western cutlery.

Recommended for Quality
We have been very impressed with the quality of these stones. Whether you're purchasing the very coarse 220 grit or all the way up to the extremely fine 12,000 grit, we’ve found these stones to be very consistently graded. If you’ve considered purchasing a set of Japanese Waterstones, we certainly recommend the Naniwa Sharpening Stones.

Splash and Go Resin Bonded
If you want to get down to the real details of these stones, they are made with a resin bond. The resin bond gives these stones two real benefits. First, the resin bond allows for a higher level of abrasive particles compared with less expensive methods of stone bonding. The higher abrasive levels contribute to the speed of sharpening. Second, these resin bonded stones don't require soaking in water prior to use, just a sprinkle on the top is all that is needed.

Also Available Individually
While these sets represent a great value, Naniwa Sharpening Stones are also available individually.

Made in Japan.

Q. What's the difference between the Naniwa Sharpening Stones and the Naniwa Specialty Sharpening Stones?

A. The make up of the stones is the same. The difference is that the Naniwa Specialty Sharpening Stones are half the thickness of the Naniwa Sharpening Stones.

Q. Do Naniwa Super Stones require flattening?

A. Over time, all waterstones require flattening. The bonding material of the stone will wear, providing fresh abrasive material. This is why waterstones sharpen so quickly. This is also why they need to be flattened periodically. Flattening can be done with a Naniwa Flattening Stone or a DMT Dia-Flat 95 Lapping Plate.
