Vitrified Aluminum Oxide Stone

Naniwa's Hibiki water stones are made with a vitrified bond. These ceramic bonded water stones are on the harder side as water stones go and they hold their flatness well. They also are very responsive and give great feedback in use.

Naniwa Recommends for Wood Working Tools

Naniwa recommends the Hibiki water stones for use on wood working tools. The excellent feedback and harder wearing of these stones makes them ideal for sharpening wood working chisels and plane blades.

Soaking Stones

The Hibiki are soaking stones and need to be immersed in water for several minutes before you sharpen. 15-20 minutes before your sharpen, submerge the Hibiki stone in water. Bubbles will form as air displaces from the stones. When the bubbles stop, the stone is saturated and ready to go.

Received my Sharpening System today,(Norton IM83) and I've got to tell you that I am excited about using this product. I've been in the meat cutting business for 45 years, and as you can imagine, I've used allot of different types and styles of sharpening equipment. I have had 3 Norton Multi-Oil Stone units in my lifetime, and then I see this IM83 and I think that this is what I need to carry with me when and wherever I go. I just LOVE this little box full of expertise equipment to keep me sharp and at a razors edge. Thank you for the service, it was fast and easy, and I received it within 3 days of ordering. I know knives and how they work, and I can't wait to start putting that edge on my "other" knives I own.
