You are now the owner of one of the most efficient methods of maintaining a sharp edge.
Custom made for Japanese Knife Company in Osaka by a leading maker of abrasives, our Fine Ceramic sharpening stones have been specifically configured for the efficient maintenance of all high-quality steel knives. The sharp shard profile grains are designed for rapid sharpening of all knives up to 64 – 66 HRC. These grains are Ceramic bonded on both the Fine and the Ultra Fine side.
The 3000 (Fine) face of the stone will polish a regularly maintained knife quickly.
The 8000 (Fine) face will polish a sharpened knife to the finest hone. Finishing grain is used for getting rid of tiny scratches that are made by middle grain and doing “Kobadome” that is a method to make edge smoother and stronger. Knives should be maintained regularly – a little sharpening often is better than a lot of work infrequently. Frequent use of the Ultra Fine side will reduce the need of the Medium side and thus extend the lifespan of the knife.
