Nano Hone Ceramic Whetstone #6000
Nano Hone is an American company run by a husband & wife team, Harrelson and Sayuri Stanley, producing innovative and integrated sharpening products; we often call these the 'Apple' products of the sharpening world. The products are designed intuitively and conscientiously so that sharpeners can truly concentrate on improving their techniques without having to divert energy on unrelated issues (anchoring all the stones, cleaning up the mud and mess afterwords, being able to use the entire stones etc).
We always recommend Nano Hone products to any sharpeners looking the ultimate sharpening set up. Period.
A fine grit stone is a great tool for pushing the edge a bit further, and a #6000 grit finish can you an amazing polish without getting into a razor's edge category (not always desired in food preparation). In addition, it is a practical range to have as a touch-up stone for professional cooks and home cooks alike.
Recommended usage: This is a splash-and-go stone, meaning no soaking prior to usage necessary. It excels at creating a refined feeling edge for almost all types of steels. It is a medium-hard stone that is versatile in both edge maintenance and polishing, thanks to very consistent abrasive size. We highly recommend this stone to anyone seriously interested in having a wicked edge, and creating an even polish on a bevel (try using a thick slurry with light pressure, when doing this).
