Description

Kitayama sharpening stones are used for sharpening knives on KME and Hapstone knife sharpeners. Kitayama stones are made of milled natural abrasive.

Kitayama stones are 6 mm thick.

Kitayama stones are universal and can be used to sharpen knives of any steel.

Kitayama is preliminarily lapped and does not require lapping after purchase.

Kitayama should be used with water as a lubricant. Do not soak Kitayama stones in water. Just splash, or use a water spray. Never store stones in water. Never dry stones near heat.

Advantages of aluminum blanks

  • If you accidentally drop the stone, it's less likely you break it;
  • Much longer life span for the stone after multiple flattening and lapping;
  • Easy identification due to laser engraving;
  • Reliable clamping for stones of imperfect shape.

Stones mounted on aluminum blanks are thicker than stock KME stones. We recommend using the thickness compensator if you use stones of different thickness.
