Q & A

  • Are Chosera stones really original? Why are they not available on the web site of Naniwa?

    Many end products are made by Gritomatic. We buy Chosera sharpening stones from international distributors, perform the cutting, flattening and lapping, and mount the stones to blanks. We keep the names of the original sharpening stones in the names of the finished products, as well as the countries of origin of these stones.

  • Which Chosera stones are good for extending a Boride stone set? The max grit of Boride is 1200. Is Chosera 2000 okay as a next step?

    The first thing you should consider when combining stones from different brands is grit scale. Boride uses FEPA-F, while Chosera uses a different scale. Chosera 5000 is approximately equal to F 1200. That means that Chosera 2000 and 3000 will be a step down from Boride 1200. You should consider Chosera 10000 instead.

  • Does Chosera use the japanese grit scale?

    Yes and no. Chosera stones from 400 to 3000 grit use the JIS scale. Chosera 5000 and 10000 stones do not. Please see our grit chart for more information about conversions.

  • What if I buy Chosera stones 3 mm thick to keep all of my collection uniform?

    Buying 3 mm thick Chosera stones is not recommended. A thickness of 6 mm is becoming the community standard for Edge Pro sharpening stones. Additionally, 3 mm stones have a shorter life cycle and must be purchased more often than 6 mm stones, which is something to consider given the high price of Chosera series stones. Additionally, 3 mm thick Chosera stones are prone to sudden rifting when drying, making them unusable.

  • Can I buy a sharpening stone without a blank?

    We don't sell sharpening stones without blanks.
