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.
This 5000 grit stone is perfect for those who prize long term edge retention on their high performance Japanese knives. On the other hand, if you’re after a silkier edge, the Super Series 5000 grit is an excellent “stepping stone” to use before taking your knives up to 8,000, 10,000, or 12,000.
All the Chocera stones come with a Nagura stone
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.
