Suehiro Two Sided Sharpening Stone - 1000 & 280 Grit
Suehiro, a Japanese waterstone manufacturer from Niigita province in Japan, has a long history of producing high quality, yet affordable ‘toishi’ (sharpening stones). For many years now, they have produced an outstanding range of sharpening stones and continue to produce them today.
Quality is of utmost importance to Suehiro and that is made evident in his sharpening stones. A stone bought from them 30 years ago performs in the same way when used today. In Japan, you will likely see Suehiro sharpening stones almost everywhere; from department stores, home centres, and fine cutlery dealers.
Size: 27mmH x63mm x 183mm"
Use & Precaution
Before using this Suehiro sharpening stone, soak in water for at least 5 minutes.
Do not also soak in water finishing stones #3000 and above. After use, let the stone dry thoroughly. Returning a stone into its box while still wet or damp will result in molding and might decrease in quality.
