Naniwa Super Stones
This series of sharpening stones from Naniwa are made from the same high quality grit as the Naniwa PRO series but made from a softer resin with slightly less grit for those on a budget.
These stones are made from tightly packed resin bonded grit and have the following advantages:
- No pre soaking required - simply splash some water on the surface and start sharpening
- Faster cutting than regular stones
- Longer lasting - about twice as long as regular stones
- Much less mess than “cement” type stones
The Naniwa Super Stone series ranges from 220 to 12000 grit and are all made via the same resin bonded process to give a consistent “feel” through the sharpening process
N.B. These stones do not have a plastic bases like our previous ranges. You can purchase a sturdy rubber base here
