Description: The Ohishi #1000/3000 Grit Combination Waterstone has a large surface, making sharpening longer knives easier.
The #1000 grit side is used to remove scratches from rougher stones and to further refine the edge. This grit is often effective as a starting point if the knife is in fairly good condition.
The #3000 grit side is used to create an aggressive edge where a razor edge is not required. This stone may be followed by a Ohishi #8000 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 the #3000 grit side of this stone.
