Naniwa NOS B Grade Whetstone #4000
This product is currently sold out.
A fine grit stone is a great tool for pushing the edge a bit further, and a #4000 grit finish gives you similar refinement without sacrificing too much of the edge retention of finer stones. In addition, it is a practical range to have as a touch-up stone for professional cooks and home cooks alike. This NOS (new-old-stock) is a very limited in stock and priced extremely well; we don't expect these to last long.
Recommended usage: This is a splash-and-go stone, meaning no soaking prior to usage necessary. It excels at creating a toothy, yet refined feeling edge for almost all types of steel, and a little softer than Naniwa's professional #3000, making it slightly easier to use for beginners. We highly recommend this stone to anyone seriously interested in maintaining a toothy edge on his/her Japanese knives, without breaking the bank.
