Imanishi Natural Whetstones | Omura Rough Stone

Generally we recommend synthetic whetstones for the lower (rougher) grits, this however is an exception. After testing these for in-store sharpening for the last 3 months we've been amazed at the quality. So much so we bought every one Imanishi had.

 

These stones are amazing value, outlasting 3-6 synthetics of similar grit. We've been using for chip repair, thinning and a bevel set. Grit does vary being natural, and it will get finer as you work the (sticky) slurry but we are using in place of 400-800 grit stones.

 

A short soak is recommended but don't leave permanently in water. saying that we did leave one in water to test and it held up better than any rough natural we've used in the past. Flattening may be required on arrival.

    Japanese Sharpening Stones (Whetstones)

    The consensus for sharpening Japanese kitchen knives, as well as Japanese woodworking tools, is the use of a whetstone. Dry grinding can affect temper (effectively ruining your knife or tool) and diamond plates are often too aggressive (removing too much material). 
    All Japanese whetstones will require flattening after use, no matter what type of stone, or the style of your sharpening, all whetstones will begin to dish over time. We recommend a ceramic flattening stone, or diamond plate for this task. For more info, check out Selecting a Japanese Whetstone
