Maker: Ohishi (click to see more by this maker)
Item num: 88046
Item weight: 34.00 oz.
Description: The Ohishi #3000/8000 Grit Combination Waterstone has a large surface, making sharpening longer knives easier.
The #3000 grit side is used to remove scratches from rougher stones and to further refine the edge. Finishing at 3000 grit creates an aggressive edge which is well suiting to cutting rope and opening cardboard boxes.
The #8000 grit side is used to create a high performance, razor edge with the slightest bite. This stone may be followed by a Ohishi #10000 Grit Waterstone for a smooth razor edge. The clay matrix is fast cutting and provides a clear surface with no deep scratches.
We recommend using a stone holder to keep the stone from slipping while sharpening and to raise the stone above the table's surface. A Nagura Stone should be used in combination with both the #3000 grit and the #6000 grit sides of this stone.
