This stone is new from Naniwa and we're nick naming it the "New Snow White" since it's very similar but not exactly the same as the original by that name that we are also selling. This stone cuts a little faster and we're told by Naniwa that the particles are a little more uniform. It also seems to use a little more water than the original snow white. This 8000 grit stone from Naniwa is a pure white magnesia bond stone with great polishing properties. Jyunpaku translates to “pure white” or “snow white” hence the nickname it receives in sharpening circles. This is a great stone to progress to after using the 5000 and before progressing to the 10000.

Stainless proved to be the most difficult of the bunch to finish with this stone, but it ultimately produced a finely polished edge. The Junpaku has good hardness, so gouging shouldn't be an issue. The polish it achieves is quite nice for an
