There are regular sharpening stones and then there are sharpening stones that become your most valued possessions. The Naniwa Chosera is one of those products. Everything about them was designed for the most discriminating user. An experienced user is looking for a stone that not only sharpens well, but sharpens quickly. The Chosera is so consistent and quick to sharpen that it is truly a pleasure to use.What makes the Chosera different from other waterstones is the bonding. They call it Magnesia Bonding in comparison to their Resin bonding on the Naniwa Superstones. One of the main features of this process is greater density and consistency of finely graded abrasive particles. This gives the stone the fastest sharpening capability among our waterstones. Experienced users can really feel a difference with these stones.UseSoaking Chosera stones is optional. If you do soak, we recommend no more than 15 minutes. After soaking or wetting, use the included Nagura Stone to get the stone ready for sharpening. Now your stone is ready for sharpening. We do recommend keeping a spray bottle handy to keep the stones wet while sharpening.CareLike many products designed for the high-end user, the Naniwa Chosera stones require more care than your average stone. Unlike some waterstones, these are not to be left in water, leaving them in water will affect the bonding. When you are done, just let them air dry. Donâ€TMt try to speed up the drying process by exposing them to heat, just let them air dry so they can dry evenly. Store the stones only after they are completely dry. If this extra care is too much for you, we suggest you choose a different type of stone.210x70x25mm
