Abrasive whetstone for sharpening NANIWA Traditional Stone on blank 150x20x5mm
Naniwa Traditional Stones are one of the basic series of whetstones from Naniwa. These stones have been produced for a long time and are a rebrand of the famous DX Stone series, only the name and packaging have changed, the stone itself has remained unchanged. It is believed that the Naniwa Traditional Stones series of whetstones was created as a budget alternative to relatively cheap kitchen brands such as King, which are less expensive and therefore more attractive especially for beginners. Stones of Naniwa Traditional Stones series are not so soft and do not have such high grain renewal on the work surface. Naniwa Traditional Stones have a very hard bond and excellent geometry when sharpening, and their abrasive ability is not much lower than others.
Naniwa Traditional Stones are a great alternative to many of the big name brands, this stone is versatile and suitable for almost all tool steels. Naniwa Traditional Stones are especially good for working with high-alloyed steels, since it is with them that little wear of the stone is so necessary during long-term hard work.
The open structure of the stone (without inter-abrasive impregnation) with a very uniform network of thin capillaries allows not only to effectively retain liquid in the grinding stone and obtain extremely aggressive metal removal from the workpiece, but also to avoid the problem of stone geometry distortion even with partial impregnation. Another side of such unique properties of the Naniwa Traditional Stones series bars is the long drying time of the stones after use. Depending on the temperature and humidity of the environment, the drying time to the state when the stone can already be put in the box varies, but as a rule it is 2-3 days for the bars. In general, the regulations for the care of these sharpening stones are the same as those for other Japanese water stones.
