Straddling the line between fine and super fine, the Naniwa 5,000 Super Stone is a destination stone for many knife blades. This resin bonded, semi-soft stone will put a finishing polish on an edge that in most cases need not be improved. It is a perfect next step after a 1,000 stone and a penultimate stage on the way to a true super fine grit.
This stone marks the crossover from sharpening to polishing and many people find it to be a great place to stop as the blade is at the point where edge retention is at a maximum. Others will push on to an even more refined and polished edge. Either way the 5,000 Super Stone is the perfect step on your way to your perfect blade.
The stone is generously sized for larger knives. A splash or two of water and itís ready to go. It comes with a base.

Awesome Japanese stones. I just received the 1k and 5k stones and they are amazing on my Japanese knives. Thanks chefknivestogo!
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.
Loved the instructional videos on the website.
Great service and quick shipping. Best selection of Japanese knives around. I recommend this site to all of my fellow culinary professionals!

I ordered several Christmas presents from Chef Knives To Go. Everything arrived as promised and all who received gifts from there were happy with them.
