5  Game Changer for me, December 28, 2016
Posted By: Yahzdi - verified customer

There have been many times I could have saved myself hours of 'sharpening' if I had spent a few minutes 'tuning' a blade. But setting up my sharpening station takes time; all the tubs and water bottles and STUFF. So I gave up on the delusion that I was ever going to make myself something like this bridge and spent 60 bucks more on my multi thousand $ knife obsession/collection, which includes all my Japanese woodworking tools. I adjusted the bridge for my sink, which is now the 'tub'. I lay the stone on the bridge and turn on the faucet; my splash and go stones are ready in a minute or two. A quick hosing with the faucet when I finish the quick tune-up and everything is ready to dry and stow quicker than it takes to describe it. I keep the bridge, ready to go, on the window sill above the sink. It looks right at home there. I can now do a quick tune-up in about 5 minutes - start to finish. Just spend the 60 bucks and let it change your life. The only other way 60 bucks can make this much difference is buying roses for ....

5  Huge help for sharpening!, July 11, 2016

I originally used an old cutting board as a sink bridge, and my fun in sharpening went way up once I got this! I did have to cut off some of the sliding part for the bridge to fit in my sink, but I have had no problems at all since, and have spent dozens of hours sharpening on this. It is a great design, sturdy, and easy to use. It is very light, so I take other places where I need to sharpen knives for other people. Great accessory for sharpening!

First, this is a well-made, highly functional item. I really like design, the sheet metal used and the workmanship. Stores easily under the sink, sets up fast and tears down fast. I like the way the rubber cushions my sink.

If I had to quibble, it would be about how difficult it was, at least initially, to fiddle with the adjusting knobs. But, I remembered a pack of SS washers in my toolbox. I put 3 under the block clamp length adjustment knob and now it can be located and adjusted effortlessly. The backstop height adjuster knobs got a washer each when the backstop was moved into functional position from shipping position and are now an easy grab. Knew it would fit my sink by about on the short end before I ordered, so no issue there.

The Naniwa Sink Bridge, with the washers in place, rates 5 stars all day long for its serviceability and robust durability. It really steps up the sharpening game for me because Im able to sharpen right at the sink. Set up a slow drip on one end of the stone and just focus on getting an edge sharp. Just what I wanted!

This is a very good basic sink bridge. It is reliably constructed and offers very good support, even under firm pressure. It has a good range of adjustability, but it won't secure some smaller stones like the King combo stone and I'm not confident in how it would secure irregular natural stones. I wish the lower securing slider were able to move up about an inch further and the part that contacted the stone were wider.
Also, the securing knobs are all underneath so whenever you switch between stones you will need to reach under there and loosen/tighten stuff.
The Tojiro addresses both of these concerns, but it is twice the money.

The Naniwa sink bridge makes clean-up a snap! This is one of the best gadgets around if you love to sharpen freehand, but hate the mess and clean-up! Nice sturdy construction will assure years of use. I wish I had gotten one of these babies years ago!

I really like this device. It makes clean up so easy, and it also makes it very easy to keep your stone wet. It just required some modification to fit my sink.

What a difference! Working on the stones over the water in the sink
makes the sharpening a pleasant time instead of a messy chore. I started
with a 2X4 over the sink. The Naniwa is stable, compact and holds the
stones making it easier to obtain the edge I want. The bridge seems to
be made to accommodate rather large sinks. No problem, I reduced the
length by a couple of inches.
Love it.

Perhaps the sinks in the places I live in are small, but I found this to be a bit too long to fit comfortably in my sink. Perhaps I should have measured...Otherwise a great product

Perfect accessory for using water stones. I have a plastic laundry sink in a cabinet on my patio and this takes the mess out of water stone sharpening.

Possibly the best knife accessory for small kitchens. Makes cleanup almost effortless!
One star taken off for finish, but don't let this put you off.

I received the Naniwa sink bridge in good condition and started using it today. It worked beautifully, and was very stable.
