-- Produces a working sharp, mirror edge

-- For polishing and daily maintenance sharpening

-- Same as Naniwa Professional 3K

The 1x6 Naniwa Chosera 3K Grit stone is an excellent stone for light touching up and routine maintenance on dull, but otherwise intact edges. It leaves a lightly mirrored polished edge that is more than acceptable for almost any knife or tool. It is a very good stone to finish on or to use as a medium grit stone before progressing to finer and polishing grits. 

The 1" x 6" x 5mm stone is mounted to a standard steel blank and is compatible with the Jende JIGS for Knives, Edge Pro, Hapstone and TSProf sharpeners. This stone is used with water only and works best when soaked in water for a minute or two before use. Let air dry and store dry when not in use. See also our full range of 1x6 Naniwa Stones

Abrasive: Aluminum Oxide

Ideal place in a sharpening progression:

-- Starting grit for light repair and maintenance of an already sharpened but dull edge.
-- After lower grit sharpening stones (400, 600, 800, 1K, 2K grit)
-- After finer belt grinder grits (A30, A16, A6 Trizact grit)
-- Before progressing to polishing stones (4K - 10K grit)
-- A final stone for initial polished sharpness on many knives and tools.

Hacks and Tips:

-- Use a moderate amount of water when sharpening with this stone to avoid the black swarf from turning into a thick paste. A cleaner surface will cut faster than a thicker pasted one.
-- If using this stone as a final or polishing grit, keep the black swarf viscous and it will produce a slightly more refined edge.
-- Lap this stone with a coarse or fine diamond plate, medium or fine silicon carbide (SiC) powder, Jende Glass Lapping Plate, or low grit wet dry sand paper to keep it consistently flat and clean.
