Naniwa Hibiki stones are a must-have for serious sharpening nerds. Originally designed for professional sharpeners who required superior accuracy and trueness from their stones, this series is extremely hard and stays flat for a very long time.
This grit is excellent for starting somewhat sharp edges, refining rough edges, and polishing scratched steel. This particular stone excels at evening out bevels after thinning on rougher stones and is a favourite of Knifewear master sharpener Naoto.
When to use this stone:
Cuts steel quickly and no soaking is required, just splash and go.
The ultimate stone for evening out bevels after thinning.
Excellent for touching up western and hard-working Japanese knives that you want a stronger edge.
If you believe in "Buy it once", this is the stone for you.
Always flatten your stone with a truing stone after sharpening.
