5,000 Grit, Splash & Go, Very Slow Wearing, Fast Cutting


Half-Thickness High-End Stone for Long-Lasting Enthusiast & Home Use


5,000 grit is ideal for creating a hybrid edge when used alongside a 1000 to 3000 grit stone, for Uraoshi on Single Bevel knives, and when used in a stone progression for single bevel knives or for polishing.


As a professional sharpener, I’ve hand-picked these stones to suit the needs of even the most discerning users. I use many of these stones regularly and can vouch for their quality. I will only sell items I am willing to use.


Naniwa Choseras are arguably the most sought after high end whetstones in the market because they cut quickly, dish slowly, and are Splash & Go, and Aratas are just thinner versions of the same stone. These particular lines are Japanese market exclusives and are equivalent to the Naniwa Professional stones. Whereas the Professionals are 20 mm thick, the Choseras and Snow White are thicker at 25 mm, and the Gouken Aratas are thinner at 15 mm.


Stone Dimensions: 210 x 70 x 15 mm

The stone comes with a plastic box with rubber feet that doubles as a sharpening stand.
