3000 grit shiageto from Kaiden
The Kaiden 3000 is a slightly softer style that should be used exclusively for single bevelled knives. It is quick to create a slurry and cuts very convincingly but if it a mirror finish you are after follow up with an 8000 synthetic stone for best results.
Ceramic stones tend to be super thirsty and we recommend using in an area you can regularly splash a lot of water, ideally directly over a basin.
Kaiden Ceramic Sharpening Stones
The Kaiden range of ceramic sharpening stones are laden with rich amounts of aluminium oxide grit for superior cutting power. They are labouriously hand moulded and pressed with 100t of pressure before being dried and high fired over a 36-hour period. These stones are for the true professional and although good for ryoba style edges they excel for kataba style blades.
We strongly recommend this stone for those with intermediate to advanced sharpening skills only.
- Super fast cutting power
- Long lasting
- Excellent feedback during the sharpening process (crisp burrs)
- Great end results- i.e sharp blades
- Instructions: Soak the 3000 grit stone a good 20 minutes before use or until the bubbles stop rising. Keep adding water as you go throughout the sharpening process.
N.B. Please do not soak this stone for long periods as it will degrade the stone. We recommend using this stone in conjunction with a sturdy rubber base.
