Nano Hone Ceramic Whetstone #10000
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. They 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 super fine grit stone is a great tool for pushing the edge to a limit, and creating a mirror finish on a wide bevel. The #10,000 grit stone gives a superb edge that allows you treat the ingredients with respect by preserving their texture and integrity. In addition, it is a great range to have for most single sided tools (both front and Ura) or straight razor honing.
Recommended usage: This is a splash-and-go stone, and it is not too hard and very consistent its finish. We normally don't like very fine edges on kitchen knives but this Nano Hone stone is just toothy enough that we will often use it for slicers and single bevel knives. We highly recommend this stone to anyone seriously interested in maintaining a fine edge on his/her slicers, and polishing wide bevels to continue on natural stones. For single bevel maintenance, this is a great stone to have for both Ura sharpening and other tools (Kamisoris, Japanese woodworking tools etc).
