Size 200 x 50 x 25mm (8″ x 2″ x 1″)
Lubricate with water, never oil! Fill the stone with water by submerging it for about 5-10mins before use. When sharpening, keep the stone wet, flushing often to clear away steel debris to expose fresh cutting particles.
These are traditional stones which abraid quickly to reveal new particles. Because of this they must be dressed often to keep them flat and effective.
Keep Japanese Combination Waterstones flat with a Flattening Stone or a suitable diamond stone.
