Cerax 1000 (soaking sharpening whetstone) : one of fastest and positive feeling whetstone I have used up to date, regardless of brand.  The tactile feedback is unmatched, even for whetstones that cost a lot more. It's also slow wearing, dense, and physically larger than most sharpening whetstones available.

My personal favorite sharpening soaker, even after years of searching, testing, and comparing whetstones.

only 15-20 of soaking time required for optimal performance.

205mm x 73mm x 27mm


Rika 5000: (soaking polishing whetstone): This whetstone is possibly the only soaking polishing whetstones on the market. I've tested dozens of similar grit whetstones, but none give you the same immediacy and tactile feedback.  It's fast cutting, and can certainly be used daily, or weekly, for edge maintenance, and well as being the final polishing whetstone.  

Also, the unique "kasumi" or hazy finish, is something I've always been a fan of, and have not found another stone that can give a similar finish, tactile feel, at this price point.  Even without the mirror polishing of similar grit whetstones, you cannot get a better edge from this 5000 grit polishing stone.

I have a broken one that is 3 years old, that I still use on my personal knives.

10 minutes of soaking is optimal 

measure 210mm x 75mm x  23mm

Cerax 1000

I already had a 3000 and 6000 grit Cerax but I was using a shitty 1000 grit from Amazon that I got for like $15 and the 1000 grit Cerax really is a game changer and worth the money You can achieve a razor sharp edge with this stone alone

Suehiro 5000 waterstone

It's a great stone. It was suggested by Burrfection, so I took your exert advice. I'm very pleased. I also purchased a rolled buffalo hide strop. Used. I love it too. Thank you for the great instructional videos. They certainly are worth purchasing items from you. A real bargain. You should have classes.


Great service no problem with international shipping
