This is the new version of the Naniwa Super Stone with new packaging. They are made with a new resin bond and a tighter control of grit particle size. This bonding agent gives the stones two distinct advantages. First, the resin bond allows for a higher concentration of abrasive particles compared with less expensive methods of stone bonding. The higher abrasive levels contribute to the speed and ease of sharpening. Second, these resin bonded stones don't require soaking in water prior to use, just a sprinkle on the top is all that is needed. Do not soak these stones!

This particular 400 grit stone is excellent for establishing a new bevel angle or removing chips from the blade. This stone is the lowest grit you will need if you maintain your edges. If your knife or tool is not damaged or allowed to get too dull between sharpening sessions this 400 would be the coarsest stone you would need.

They measure 210 mm x 70 mm x 20 mm.

We are happy to be the only US distributor of Naniwa Super Stones that come in the larger 20 mm thickness without bases.

5  Great stone for moderately neglected knives, August 22, 2015
Posted By: Noah

This stone is a fast and a smooth cutter, and I have used it on many very low cost German-style knives that have steel with a lot of pitting, and I've been able to rapidly get back to a good blade. It only takes about 10-15 swipes on this to completely reset a blade to the point that it can be polished up at higher grits. I just did a set of cheap to half decent German knives with this, switching to the Naniwah Super 2000 grit and the knives all went from dull to very sharp in very short order. I would have tried the Nubatama Bamboo 400 and the Naniwah 2K 'green brick of joy' for this type of work but CKTG were sold out at the time. Builds a swarf quickly and cuts quickly and very smoothly/uniformly. Very long lasting and harder to gouge than the fact it doesn't gouge in my experience. While I have some 800-1200 grit stones, I feel like I don't need to use them when using this because it polishes up so cleanly and leaves a nice haze on the knife to assess the new edge. For already sharp edges it's too much, but for the 6-12 month neglected knife that can no longer cut paper or tomatoes...this is a go-to.
