Putting together two stones possessing separate grit ratings, the Naniwa Combination Waterstone Hones, 3,000 and 8,000 Grit can be used to both sharpen and polish the blunted edges on used cutting instruments. The pink stone has a rating of 3,000, meaning that its surface is coarser and thus better at removing steel during the sharpening process. In contrast, the yellow stone with the 8,000 rating is finer and better suited to clearing up the scratches left behind after sharpening using coarser stone. Putting two stones together in the same product not only makes it more versatile, but also that much harder to damage.
For more than six decades, Naniwa has been manufacturing products used to help customers maintain sharp and effective edges on their cutting instruments, ranging from personal razors to knives used in the kitchen. Despite its commanding position, Naniwa continues to remain interested in bringing its products and customer service to the next level.
