As a sharpener, I like this stone because it sharpens more quickly than other waterstones to create rideline, even if the rideline is very worn or missing. The size is slightly larger than other waterstones giving more surface to work. What makes the Chosera different is the 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. Usually stones that cut this fast dish out quickly. However we have not experienced that with this high grade stone.
The Chosera stone inclues a stand plus a Nagura stone. The Nagura Stone is used to maintain the surface and to make a slurry prior to sharpening. It will also help maintain the flatness between lapping. Since each stone comes with its own Nagura Stone, you don’t have to worry about sharing grits with your coarse and fine stones.
Use this stone with spray water being generous with the water and dress with the nagura stone to create a slurry. Do not soak the stone, do not keep it damp when storing, bring it inside when the weather is freezing.
5000 Very Fine Grit - This stone is very fine. This is a wonderful final stage for most knives or tool edges. We recommend using this after the 2000 or finer grits.
