Naniwa Professional 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, meaning no soaking prior to usage necessary. It excels at creating a toothy, yet refined feeling edge for almost all types of steels. It feels a bit finer than other #1000 stones and has great feedback. This is the stone we use the most often here at the shop, and we highly recommend this stone to anyone seriously interested in getting a great edge. We do not recommend this stone for polishing wide bevels unless you have a lot of patience and experience in doing so.
