Suehiro Japanese Whetstone | New Cerax CR-803-R (800 Grit)

We've found these models to be a little soft for our liking, we recommend a harder stone for knives and tools. Although a little more expensive initially, Nano Hone stones last much much longer, require flattening less and give a far better edge... Nano Hone 1,000.

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
