Extra Wide and Long

At approximately 8-13/16" long x 3-1/2"wide (225mm x 90mm), Suehiro's Debado MD Stones have more surface area to work with than most other water stones.

This additional working area of the Debado MD Stones means sharpening large knives without feeling cramped on a small stone surface. And that extra width allows more blade to contact the stone at one time, making them perfect for knives with long, straight cutting edges.

The extra large size is also useful for woodworkers. 3-1/2" of width means there is no worry about a plane blade being too wide for the Debado MD stones, and the almost 9 inches of length means plenty of room for a honing guide.

The 200 grit and the 1000 grit are approximately 1-1/16" (~27-28mm) thick. The 4000 grit stone is approximately 15/16" (~24-25mm) thick.

Splash-and-Go Ceramic Water Stones

The Debado MD Stones offer splash-and-go convenience and the better shape holding characteristics that go with this harder stone format. The Debado stones are made with Suehiro's ceramic process, similar to their Cerax soaking stone line, but a bit harder for better wear resistance. They do form a slurry and offer good feedback.

Nagura Stone Included

The Debado MD stones come with a nagura stone for cleaning and refreshing the surface. Each stone grit has a nagura matched to it for fast surfacing and cleaning, from the very coarse nagura with the 200 grit Green Stone to the medium grit nagura matched with the 1000 Grit White Stone on to the fine nagura paired with the 4000 grit Yellow stone. This grit matching ensures fast cleaning and an appropriate surface texture on the water stone. The nagura stones should be soaked prior to use for maximum efficiency.

Choose Your Grit

There are three grits to choose from:

  • 200 grit - Green Stone, Suehiro part # MD-20. This is a fast cutting stone. It forms a slurry quickly and is good for reshaping dull or damaged blades.
  • 1000 grit - White Stone, Suehiro part # MD-100. This medium grit stone is a great balance between the fast cutting of softer soaking stones and the shape holding of harder splash and go stones.
  • 4000 grit - Yellow Stone, Suehiro part # MD-400. This finishing stone forms a good working slurry and leaves a very slightly toothy edge perfect for culinary knives.
Note that the numbers printed on the stones are Suehiro's part numbers, and not the grit numbers.

Thanks John, I am so glad to be working with people who know their products and how to use them. You have a very informative and well laid out website and I learned a lot. It was a rainy Sunday and I watched every video and read through each article. The information you provided was very helpful in teaching technique and helping me decide what to buy. Also your products are so well thought out, that no matter what stone you prefer (oil, water or diamond), there is a nice package available for a beginner. All of the products you put together each had their own advantages and believe me, each one spent some time in the shopping cart until I made my final decision.
