Product Description

Toishi-Ohishi offer 7 single grit stones and 6 combination stones.

These stones are 8" (205mm) long, 3 inches (75mm) wide and a minimum of  1" (25mm) thick*.

The 3" (75mm) width makes them particularly useful when honing wide plane blades, knives or cut throat razors.

*Stone sizes:

220 grit - 205 x 80 x 35mm
All other single grit stones 205 x 75 x 25mm
Combination stones are 205 x 75 x 30mm
Nagura Stone 75 x 25 x 25mm

These stones cut quickly but are dense and hard enough not that most of the them do not require soaking prior to use (the exceptions are the 220 & 600 grits). A sprinkle of water is all you need to get to work for the 1000+ grit stones. The 1,000 grit will establish your secondary bevel and the 10,000 grit yields a beautiful final polish.

These Toishi-Ohish sharpening stones have been a particular favourite of Deneb Pulchalski at Lie-Nielsen Toolworks for over a decade now.

Nagura (correcting) stone - this stone is used to condition waterstones during use. For natural waterstones their use is to wear away hard particles or contamination in the waterstone, and to selectively allow flattening by being rubbed on a high spots on the stone. Another usage is to create slurry. Use with Ohishi stones of more than 1000 grit.
