Suehiro Japanese Whetstone | New Cerax CR-280-OR (280 Grit)

Suehiro whetstones are the most widely used whetstone in Japan, with a reputation for consistency and quality. Slightly softer than the other stones we stock, they are a high value option that performs very well. Most come with a convenient whetstone base (able to hold water for soaking), and small nagura (dressing) stone. 

This model is a coarse whetstone made for repairing chips and extremely dull knives or tools.

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
