8,000 Grit, Splash & Go, Very Slow Wearing, Fast Cutting
Full-Sized High-End Stone for Serious Enthusiasts & Professionals
An 8000 Grit stone is ideal for straight razor sharpening, Uraoshi for single bevel knives, finishing an Usuba or Yanagiba, or creating a hybrid edge when used alongside a 1000 to 3000 grit stone. This stone is considered as a more budget-friendly alternative to the legendary Chosera 10,000 grit, which often retails for upwards of 17,000 PHP while offering similar levels of performance.
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.
*Many knives that I sharpen go through this 8000 grit stone to finish with a synthetic hybrid edge. This is my go-to Uraoshi sharpening stone for Single Bevel knives.
Stone Dimensions: 200 x 70 x 25 mm
