Naniwa Chocera Stone 2000 210x70x25mm

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.

For those seeking a silkier edge for their Western style knives, The Chocera 2000 grit makes the perfect finishing stone. If you’re sharpening Japanese knives, this stone will reduce your sharpening time on finer grit stones. Moreover, it is a great “tuning” stone. If you’re knife isn’t really dull but you want to give it a sharper, silkier edge the 2000 is the perfect stone to start on.

All the Chocera stones come with a Nagura stone

Care for whetstone

In order to maximize the performance of the stones and avoid any misuse, please review the following information carefully.

  • Use plenty of water, this will act as a lubricant, preventing knives from excess heat. Never ever use oil it will ruin your stone. Don’t let black residue from sharpening build up on the stone to avoid plugging up the grit. 
  • Do not keep stones in direct sunlight, extreme heat or cold (i.e. Inside of a car in winter).
  • Please wipe excess water off from the stone before storing.
  • Some stones require soaking in water for about 20min prior to use, others only require a splash of water while sharpening. It depends on the stone. If the stone immediately sucks up all the water on it, soak it. If it pools on top don’t soak it. Please ask us for each stone type.
  • Keep stone surface flat as much as you can. Get a truing stone. This will help you to maintain right angle for sharpening, and will give you the best result. The flatter the stones are, the sharper knives get!
