Morihei Hishiboshi (Hi) #500 Whetstone
This line of whetstones has been carefully developed by Morihei, a whetstone and knife supplier with over a hundred years’ experience in the trade. The stones have been designed to have similar characteristics to medium/hard natural stones, perfect for sharpening carbon steel cutlery and for bringing out the contrast (Kasumi) in laminated knives, chisels, and plane blades. These stones are fast cutting and retain their flatness well. The whole line is splash and go so no soaking is required.
