Naniwa Professional stones, formerly called Chosera are Naniwa’s top shelf series loved for their fast consistent finishes. These are excellent for wide and single bevel knives as well as double bevel. 

This 5000 stone polishes much brighter than many other stones in it’s general grit range, it provides a great edge for knives that benefit from this type of fine toothed edge. It is a great finisher for Japanese knives made with shirogami, aogami, ginsanko or many Japanese powder metals such as R2, SG2 etc. For knives used in butchery or softer western stainless steels a coarser polish can provide longer edge life however.

Naniwa Professional stones have a high concentration of a very evenly graded grit bonded in a magnesia binder, they are on the boundary between a hard and soft stone leaning on the harder end.

Because magnesia binder can dissolve we recommend a short soak of 15 minutes only. The mud generated during sharpening will add cutting material when sharpening wide surfaces of single bevel knives or thinning wide bevel knives, during sharpening small amounts of water can be added to help adjust the sharpening feel
