Chocera stones are the highest quality water stones from Naniwa. These stones are much harder than other stones, which prevents them from wearing out. Their hardness makes them more abrasive, so they take steel from the knives faster than any other type we have. When sharpening knives with these stones, I challenge you to keep from saying things like “Why, I never…”
You should not soak these stones in water before each use. A few splashes of water work perfectly. Chocera stones were originally invented for sharpening razors, so those who love razor sharp edge should use them.
The Chocera 10,000 grit stone leaves an amazing mirror like polish on the blade. This allows for ultra silky cutting and slicing.

DO NOT soak this stone. This stone only requires a splash of water while sharpening. Please wipe excess water off from the stone before storing.
Not following these directions can result in damaging your stone.
