SKU: Morihei (Hi) #1000 Categories: , , Tags: , ,


The Morihei Whetstone, Hishiboshi (Hi) Series is a step up from the Shapton Whetstones in my opinion.
These are high performance synthetic stones have larger dimensions than the Shapton series and are longer lasting.
Regarded as professional stones.

NO SOAKING REQUIRED! Just “splash and go”.

#1000 should be the first or second stone in your stone progression.
This is a medium grit stone. Re-edging can be done with a 1000 but is a lot faster with a #500
If your knife isn’t too bad or recently sharpened I would start here to minimise material removal.
Example stone progression: #500–> #1000 –> #6000 –>#12000/leather strop.

    Very happy with the stone (Morihei Whetstone Hishiboshi (Hi) Series #1000 create a burr quickly and is slow wearing) and want to thank Leigh Boys for fast shipment, quick response and great customer service.

    Extremely well made stone with great dimensions, would highly recommend to anyone who uses their knives professionally and sharpens regularly. Can’t wait to add some more of these stones to my collection!
