We have a high regard for Naniwa Super Stones. Their consistent quality, ease of use and long lasting character make them a great choice for any user.
These stones sharpen quite quickly. With many of the modern steel alloys found in knives and tools, speed of sharpening can be an important factor when choosing a sharpening stone. These stones work well on everything from tool steels to softer carbon steels and even some harder stainless alloys.
Using a Super Series 10,000 grit stone will leave a brilliant mirror-like finish on the blade of any high end Japanese knife. The enhanced performance and feeling will be well worth the little effort needed with these efficient stones.
Another great benefit of this stone is that it does not require soaking in water prior to use (in fact, it 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 slightly finer than the 8,000 and is a wonderful final stage for most knife or blade edges. We recommend using this after the 3,000 or finer grits.

Great finishing stone! Get's all my Japanese steal surgical sharp! A breeze to use and maintain.
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!
