220 grit Arato
This is a classic style Arato that really means business. Fast cutting with excellent results.
Perfect for re-creating the blade path in badly worn kataba and for repairing chips, broken tips and for thinning blades. Can also be used (gently) for the first step in resharpening.
This series of sharpening stones from Naniwa are certified by the Sakai Knife Commerce & Industry Cooperative.
The 220 grit 'green brick' is made from sintered green carbon grit. It gives up grit freely and will create slurry quickly for fast cutting action. Excellent for repairing chipped and misshapen blades.
