For most kitchen cutlery applications a 5k stone gives a high performing and versatile edge. This Naniwa Professional (formally known as the Chosera) 5k produces not only excellent edges, but does so with the ease and satisfaction for which Naniwa Chosera stones are known. Chosera stones produce precise edges thanks to their firm nature and slow dishing. They cut quickly decreasing fatigue and helping sharpeners to maintain good form. Choseras do all this with great feel and the ease of splash and go use. Extended soaking is not recommended. The 5k stones measures 210mm x 70mm x 20mm.

3  chosera 5k, September 12, 2015
Posted By: Max S

I have had this stone for a while now, however I currently own the older version which was 25mm thick and comes on a base. I have had zero cracking and fracturing problems.
The stone is very hard, has a slightly sticky feel to it when honing. Sort of reminds me of a natural stone in feel, which I think is exactly what naniwa strives for. The stone leaves one heck of a polish for 5k, and is extremely wear resistant.
I'm not sure what it is about this stone but I don't particularly love it. It seems to constantly absorb water, and I have a hard time keeping the surface wet. I struggle to get the edge I want off this stone, hard to describe, it does load up quite a bit for a chosera stone as well. Probably my least favorite of the chosera stones I have tried, and it is quite expensive. I think this may be why a lot of people opt out for the pink 3k stone. Not a bad stone, probably fantastic for razors but I find my self reaching for other hones at this grit level.

i got different man made watertstones, shapton glass stones, naniwa ss, Norton, but so far this stone is the best stone I ever had. It is hard, and the finish it leaves it so shiny, almost like a mirror. It is like a Coticule, but way cheaper and it gives a better finish. I;d buy it again!!

Let me just say upfront that this is a great stone. Great feedback, slow wearing. The finish the stone leaves is, by itself, almost mirrored. When used with it's sister, the 10k, the edge is out of this world.
