Arashiyama sharpening stones are used for sharpening knives on KME and Hapstone knife sharpeners. Arashiyama stones are made of milled natural abrasive.
Arashiyama stones are available in two grits: 1000 and 6000 JIS.
Arashiyama is preliminarily lapped and does not require lapping after purchase.
Arashiyama should be used with water as a lubricant. Do not soak Arashiyama stones in water. Just splash, or use a water spray. Never store stones in water. Never dry stones near heat.
Advantages of aluminum blanks
Stones mounted on aluminum blanks are thicker than stock KME stones. We recommend using the thickness compensator if you use stones of different thickness.
