Imanishi Arashiyama Whetstone #1000


A great medium grit stone is a must in maintaining quality kitchen knives. This medium grit range is perfect for not only re-setting edges before using finer polishing stones,  but also for creating practical, long-lasting edges on workhorse blades. If you were to have only one stone for most kitchen knife maintenance, it would be this grit.

Recommended usage: This is a splash-and-go stone, which excels in creating an even and consistent wide bevel polish in mere minutes. It has a great feedback, and generates a lot of slurry, meaning flattening with an ATOMA often is a must for consistent result. It creates a good contrast and brigthens up the core steel well, making it ideal for certain wide bevel knives (Takedas and Hinouras, for example). We recommend this stone for busy sharpeners that want fast polishing results for wide-bevel knives.
