The Suehiro Japanese Dual Stone Whetstone - New Cerax #6000/1000 Grit (CR-4800) is ideal for those seeking to maintain the sharp edges of their high-quality knives. The stone offers a #1000 grit side, ideal for removing scratches left by #800 or lower grit stones, and a #6000 grit side for super-fine finishing, particularly beneficial for high-quality knives such as hand-forged Japanese blades.
This combination whetstone is an excellent choice for maintaining an already sharp edge and preparing the scratch pattern for higher grit stones. Following a grit progression is key to achieving a refined, superior sharpening edge.
The size 3 model standard whetstone from Suehiro may be used with a wide variety of knives and cutting tools. Every Cerax stone comes mounted to a supporting plate, which can be used as a stone holder for convenient use and storage. The Cerax series also includes a small Nagura stone for unclogging the stone if particle material becomes embedded during the sharpening process.
The Cerax Waterstone by Suehiro Niigata Japan is renowned for its fast cutting surface, longevity, and consistent high quality. Despite holding their shape well and cutting swiftly, these stones require only minimal soaking and should not be stored in water.

After frequent use, the Suehiro Cerax series of stones may start to develop a dish. To maintain the stones and ensure their long life, we recommend using a lapping plate to keep the surface flat. For this process, consider the Jende Industries Glass Lapping Plate, Shapton Diamond Glass Lapping Plate, or the Shapton NAORU cast iron lapping system. Proper maintenance guarantees optimal performance and prolongs the lifespan of the stones.
