The Chosera stones are markedly harder than the Super Stones. Naniwa designed these stones for professionals who put the highest daily demands on their knives. Overall, these stones are best for those who don't have a lot of time to spend and need to quickly and cleanly sharpen their knives. Every Chosera sharpening stone is delivered with a special Nagura stone (67 x 49 x 25 mm) to put a fine sharpening paste on the surface of the Chosera stones during use. This 800 grit stone cuts quickly and is a great stone to set the edge in preparation for the 1000 grit stone. Naniwa claims these are splash-and-go stones, but users say that soaking for 15 minutes really brings out the best qualities of the sharpening matrix. These stones measure 210mm x 70mm x 25mm.

I purchased this stone to use as a more aggressive alternative to my Sigma Power 1k. I’m finding it to be a great foundation stone for resharpening edges that need a bit more than just a quick touchup. I would categorize it as a 1k on steroids,as it does the same job just faster. It also has that same lovely,consistent,and smooth feel of the whole Chosera line. It’s quite fast,especially when freshly lapped,and while it does leave slightly coarser scratches then a 1k,it is still fine enough that I can use it in the same progression in which I was using my Sigma 1k. While your mileage may vary,in most cases,I believe you could go to the same stones from this that you would go to from a 1k. On edges that are either small,hollow ground,or micro beveled,I’ve been jumping from it all the way up to my Snow White 8k. This may not work for you knife and razor guys,but many of us woodworkers love being able to do these big jumps. On larger areas of steel,such as blade backs,I put my Sigma Power 6k into the mix,and while it does take out the 800 scratches without any trouble,Iím thinking a Chosera 3k,which I’ve used but do not own,would be an ideal stone to follow the 800. I was expecting this stone to be quite thirsty,and while it works best with a soak,it works quite well with a heavy splash; the water tends to sit on top for a while rather than being sucked into the stone right away. Also,because it is relatively hard and fast it really helps you to get your edge geometry correct at the get go. So far I’m also finding this stone less prone to overloading and clogging than some of the other Choseraís Iíve used,and I think I like it a little better than the Chosera 1k,which I donít own,but have used a number of times and quite like also. This stone doesnít get a lot of press,presumably because it is an 800 where as 1kís tend to be more popular,but keep in mind that a Shapton 1k is also technically an 800 grit stone under the current JIS rating system. If you are looking for a ďmediumĒ grit foundational stone,the Chosera 800 is a serious force to reckoned with. I highly recommend it!
