The Naniwa Super 10,000 grit stone is renowned as one of the best polishing stones around. It leaves an amazing mirror-like finish on the blade of high end Japanese knives or blades. This allows for ultra silky cutting and slicing.
These stones are made using a resin bond method, which yields a higher quality stone than the old baked method used with cheaper stones. It offers almost all of the performance of the much more expensive and fragile magnesia-based stones but at a fraction of the cost. Also, a great benefit of this method is that the stones do not require soaking in water prior to use (in fact, they should never be soaked). A quick spray or splash of water is all that is needed and you're ready to go.
This stone is extremely fine, just slightly more so than the 8,000. Your personal preferences and knife types will be the deciding factor as to which is better suited to your needs.
This Naniwa Super 10,000 stone loads up quickly and is used to give a knife a final polished edge. It makes a perfect finishing stone for the best Japanese stainless or carbon steel knives or for a high quality European knife where you want a super fine, smooth mirror-like edge.

Nice fine texture, must have item for knife sharp fans.
CKTG is at heart a small business so the service is personal. They are one of the rare companies that actually dispatch the order the same day as receiving it and provide tracking information. It is great to deal with an individual by name and itís evident that they take pride and love in what they do.
Had a problem with one of the products and they went out of their way to resolve. I would highly recommend dealing with this company. Itís nice to find a company who cares and they will get me as a return customer.
Mark is great at answering questions for knife nuts of all levels. His service is second to none. Really appreciate the time he puts into every email as well as the free forum he hosts.
Great experience working with Chef Knives to Go. Quick delivery, and they are great about returning emails. I'm actually waiting on my second knife from them. I'm sure there will be more to come.
