The Naniwa Chosera stones are premium level stones and are well known for their wonderful feedback and fast action. One of the biggest advantages with the Chosera stones is the variety of hardness between the different grits, which can be used advantageously on harder or softer steels. They also have a very high grit density and work best with a quick soak before use.
These stones measure 1"x 6", and are a beefy 5 mm thick and come mounted on an aluminium blank that fits nicely in the TSProf, Hapstone, Edgepro and JENDE JIGS sharpening systems.

The #800 Chosera Is still technically a coarse stone, but when used with some mud, it leaves a very good, basic working edge. It is a real workhorse.
The #1,000 Chosera is one of the best stones in the series, and is aggressive enough for most maintenance while leaving an edge that is slightly more refined than other 1K stones.
