The Morihei Whetstone, Hishiboshi (Hi) Series: is made to feel like a natural stones and simulate the natural stone sharpening experience.
Morihei stones leave a kasumi finish, as they tend to produce a very nice slurry while sharpening. The t
actile feedback while using these stones is exceptional providing a excellent overall sharpening experience.

These are high performance synthetic stones have larger dimensions than the Shapton series and are regarded as professional stones.

NO SOAKING REQUIRED! Just "splash and go".

#8000 should be one of the last stones in your stone progression.
Use this stone instead of a #6000 and/or along with a #4000.
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.

About Morihei:
Morihei is a knife and whetstone supplier located in Asakusabashi, Tokyo. They have been a part of the industry for over 100 years, including the predecessor of Morihei “Oguro-Morihei-Shouten“. At one point in time, more than 20 groups of blacksmiths and sharpeners were working exclusively under Morihei. They are one of the only companies in Japan with a long-standing history of relationships with blacksmiths and whetstone and natural stone makers that still exists today.

Leigh’s 2 cents: Morihei Whetstones are a step up from the Shapton Whetstones in my opinion. Large dimensions made to last a long time.
If your looking for a set of stones that left a kasumi finish look no further.
