Natural Japanese Whetstones

Japanese natural stones have become rare and highly sought after. The stones we carry have been mined in the area around Kyoto, Japan and have been sourced for us by Mastersmith Shosui Takeda. Each stone is unique and will vary in appearance. As a natural material, it is not possible to measure the precise grit of each stone, but we list an approximation.  

Ohira - 10,000 grit

Hideriyama - 8,000 grit
