The Suehiro Japanese Whetstone - New Cerax #8000 Grit (CR-8003-W) is a fine-grade stone that takes blade sharpness to a whole new level. It is an essential part of grit progression to achieve a refined and superior sharpening edge.
This stone is designed to work best after using the 5000 and 6000 grit Cerax stones. Suehiro's size 3 model standard whetstone is suitable for a wide variety of knives and cutting tools. The whetstone comes with a storage case that can be used as a convenient stand for the stone.
The Cerax Waterstone by Suehiro Niigata Japan is renowned for its fast cutting surface, longevity, and reputation for consistency and high quality. These stones maintain their shape well and cut efficiently, allowing you to create a burr in a reasonable number of strokes.
The Cerax Stones require soaking before use, but they are not excessively thirsty. A few minutes of soaking is sufficient, and an occasional splash of water during use keeps them working smoothly. It is important not to store the stones in water. Each Suehiro Cerax stone comes mounted to a supporting plate, which can be positioned upright in the base unit for convenient use as a stone holder. Alternatively, the base unit can be used for storing the stone and lightly soaking it prior to use.
The Cerax Whetstone is packaged with a small Nagura stone, which is used to unclog the stone if particle material becomes embedded during the sharpening process.

The Suehiro Cerax series of stones may develop a dish after frequent usage. To maintain the stones and keep their surface flat for a long life, we recommend using a lapping plate. Suitable options for this process include the Jende Industries Glass Lapping Plate, Shapton Diamond Glass Lapping Plate, or the Shapton NAORU cast iron lapping system.
