Naniwa – Stone Flattener 24 Grit
The Naniwa – 24 Grit Flattening Stone produces extremely flat results on all water stones, ceramic or traditional.
Always make sure the flattening stone is wet before use. This large flattening stone comes with rubber feet for grip while running the dished whetstone across the flattening stone.
This stone is Extra coarse for a super fast flattening experience. We use these because of the high volume of hand sharpening. The stone cuts quickly, but can leave fine grooves in the higher grit stones, which should be smoothed with your dressing stone. For persons doing a more normal volume of sharpening, the large 24 grit provides the benefit of truer flat without the grooving, it just takes longer.

Naniwa – Sharpening Guide
The Japanese Sharpening guide is designed for use on Kitchen knives. The guide is extremely easy to use and will give a precise angle throughout your sharpening sessions.
Clip the sharpening guide on your knife to help keep a steady angle while sharpening on a stone.
The white strip is less abrasive than the cheap steel guides you sometimes see so you’re less likely to scratch the stone (and the plastic is less likely to scratch the knife’s blade face).
Note that the angle created will depend on the width of the knife blade. It will give you a nice Japanese angle with a Santoku or most chef’s knives, but the angle will be higher with a small blade like a paring knife, and very low with a super wide blade like a Chinese chef’s knife (cleaver).
It is a very handy little tool, especially when you’re just starting out on your sharpening journey and want to concentrate on your technique without also having to worry all the time about maintaining a consistent angle.
The white strip on the sharpening guide is made of ceramic to ensure longer wear on the guide.
This is a fixed angle guide so cannot be adjusted.
