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 4", and are a beefy 5 mm thick and come mounted on an aluminium blank that fits nicely in the KME system.
High Grit Kit (#2,000 Chosera, #3,000 Chosera, #5,000 Chosera, #10,000 Chosera)
Refine the edges on most tools and knives to working sharp levels, and quickly perform maintenance on dulled knives then bring every edge to a whole new level, and where cutting becomes effortless.
The #2,000 grit Chosera is a softer stone, and produces an excellent "good enough" edge on softer steel knives (HRC~55 and below). The #2,000 stone is made even more effective when combined with the #800 Chosera stone.
The #3,000 grit Chosera is a harder stone, and is the perfect choice for a working edge on a quality knife, and for setting the edge up for the polishing stages.
The #5,000 grit Chosera is a softer stone, with wonderful feedback. It produces a mirror finish that takes the edge to a whole new level.
The #10,000 grit Chosera takes the mirror even further, while refining the edge to "shaving sharp" levels.
