Naniwa Lobster Series – 1000 Grit
Naniwa Lobster Whetstone
Naniwa Lobster series is made from a soft, resin-bond. Theses stones are relatively soft and would need to be trued, flattened on a regular bases.
The Lobster 1000 Grit has good feedback and feel. We do recommend that the lobster series needs to be soaked at least 5 – 10 mins before use.
Make sure the stones are dried properly before storing away.
The 1000 Grit stone falls under the Medium Grit category or Nakato Meaning Middle Stone in Japanese. Medium grit stones ranges between 600 – 2000 Grit. The 1000 Grit is a great stone to start your collection, mainly used for general maintenance on an relatively sharp knife.
Size – 210 x 65 x 30 mm
MAC Ceramic Honing Rod
The White Mac honing rod has a medium 1200 grit surface that polishes your edge smooth. Similar in function to a traditional European “steel” these rods are meant to hone or gently realign your edge. Use it daily in commercial restaurant environments or once every few weeks in home environments to maintain a fine edge. This does not replace sharpening which you should still do every couple of weeks (restaurant) or every couple of months (home).
Ceramic honing rods are a much harder material than a traditional steel and have a much finer grit which obtains faster and better results.
Great for use on harder Carbon steels or powdered stainless steel.
