SKU: Morihei (Hi) #12000 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”.

#12000 should be one of the last stones in your stone progression.
This is a ultra fine polishing stone that will give your knife “teeth” and a reflective shine.
Example stone progression: #500–> #1000 –> #6000 –>#12000/leather strop.
