This synthetic, waterstone is used for polishing and finishing a final cutting edge. The Takenoko stone creates a fine paste and is useful for touching up kitchen knives, chisels, plane blades and carving tools. The stone is attached to a wooden base and also comes with a small synthetic nagura stone to clean the stone surface as well as create additional sharpening paste.
The stone should be soaked with water before use, and stored dry when finished.
