Suehiro Super Fine Finishing Whetstone 8000 Grit W-8

Sale price$126.00

This Suehiro Super Fine Finishing Whetstone comes in an extremely fine 8000 grit, so that you can easily polish blades to a mirror finish, while honing them to a razor edge. This extra-large whetstone is designed to finish blades, including very long blades, to their absolute potential.

This whetstone is made from only the finest materials to ensure durability and longevity, and even comes with a nagura to keep the stone level and flat. Suehiro's artificial whetstones are more durable than natural whetstones, and provide an even finish. The #8000 grit surface is free from impurities, so you won't have to worry about scratching your blade.

Use this whetstone to sharpen knives, swords, sickles, and razors. Super fine finishing stones like this one are ideal for blades that cut soft materials like fruit.


  • Use on blades that are already in great condition, or have recently been sharpened up to 1000-4000 grit.
  • Soak your whetstone for a few minutes, to ensure it is saturated with water. Suehiro whetstones typically need to soak for less time than other brands.
  • Place your whetstone on a chopping board, or other hard and flat surface.
  • Gently run your blade along the whetstone at a slight angle.
  • Repeat until a burr forms on the blade.
  • If your blade is double-bevel, flip it over and repeat the process.
  • If your blade is single-bevel, flip it over, and briefly run it over the stone until the burr is removed.
