The Naniwa Super Stone is markedly softer than its Chosera counterpart. Itís a great choice for professional chefs, home cooks, and knife enthusiasts. It has a fine feel to it that even the most inexperienced sharpener will appreciate.
Unlike many other stones, the Naniwa Super Stone is made with a resin bonding technique which allows for a more dense concentration of abrasive particles. The consistency and quality of these particles are what gives the stone its fast sharpening characteristics and enhanced feedback. Magnesia based stones offer slightly higher performance but are more fragile and more expensive.
An 8,000 grit is the final stage in most peopleís sharpening regimes as it results is a near flawless mirror finish edge. It is efficient enough to take over from a 2,000 or 3,000 stone.
The resin bond also makes this stone a true splash-and-go, requiring no prior soaking before use. Comes with a base.
Very good polishing stone for the money. Easily provides a mirror finish with only a few passes. It will clog up faster than other stones and is soft but over all it is a very good polishing stone.
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.
