Grit: 1000
Whetstone Size: 210x70x20mm

The Naniwa Standard (formerly Traditional) line of whetstones is a good starting place for learning to sharpen as it is a bit more affordable; it is also a good continuing point for those more experienced. They require a bit more soaking time, and do dish a bit more easily than the Professional line, but are easily flattened.

This 1000 grit stone is perfect for touching up frequently used knives and refining knives that have been sharpened on lower grit stones. Western knives also do well to finish on this stone.


  • Before use, soak for around 10 minutes or until bubbles stop.
  • Do not soak the stone for long periods of time.
  • Clean sediment off after every use.
  • If the stone becomes dished or lightly gouged, flatten with a truing stone or diamond plate.
  • Store when dried.
