We've had this stone in and out of stock over the last decade, every time it's not here we all miss it. We've been using this for finish sharpening of (some) stainless knives to great success, it's also a nice mid point in our progression on carbon single and double bevel.

    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
