The Naniwa Super Stones are high-end sharpening stones (near the very top of the many lines Naniwa makes). CKTG is the sole North American distributor of these stones with no bases which are made a full 2 cm (0.75Ē) thick. Many of the cheaper stones you'll find are just 1 cm thick and so can wear down after just a few years of use. Or worse, they stand the chance of cracking more easily since there's just not enough strength in the thin material.
The ceramic compounds used to manufacture these Super Stones are also of very high quality, and so they strike a great balance between their ability to polish a super fine edge without too much work while still being long-lasting and strong. They tend to sit on the softer side of stones available. These are truly excellent sharpening stones, suitable for any pro or serious home chef.
Overall size is also a feature, as smaller stones are more difficult to work with. It's nice to have the extra surface area when sharpening a santoku or chef's knife.
The 12,000 Super Stone occupies the high end of the grit range of this line and is one of the finest polishing stones available. It will be the final stone you use to obtain that perfect mirror edge.
This a splash and go stone so it must not be soaked.
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.
