Description
 
Unlike Western man-made stones, water rather than oil is used on
Japanese stones to prevent the surface from being clogged with metal
particles. We offer two classes of stone: coarse and finishing. The
coarse stones are 250, 800, 1000, and 1200 grit. The 250 and 800 grit
are faster cutting and used for repairing nicked edges or reshaping a
bevel. The 1000 or 1200 grit stones are used for the first stage of the
actual sharpening. Japanese water stones are softer than Western styles
causing a fresh, sharp surface to be continually exposed to the tool
edge.
