With over 100 years of experience in whetstones & sharpening, Morihei has released it's newest range of professional whetstones, the Hishiboshi. No soaking is required of these whetstones, they are longer lasting, high performing and popular with many professional sharpeners.

Japanese whetstones (also called water stones) – both natural and synthetic – are known for their quick-working qualities, not only for Japanese blades, but also for their Western equivalents. The small particles that do the cutting are loosely bound together in the stone, and so during sharpening with the whetstone, the surface particles are quickly washed out, allowing new, sharp, particles to start working on the blade. These whetstones must be lubricated only with water! Never use oil or other lubricants!

Whetstones come in a range of grits:

#80 to #500 grit is typically used to repair knives with chipped edges.
#600 to #2000 grit are used to sharpen dull knives.
#3000 to #6000 grit are finishing stones and are used to refine your knife edge.
#8000~ grit are Super finishing stone.
If you are using your knife to cut meat it is best to stop at between #4000 and #6000 grit as you can bend your knife edge on the muscle.

Must have stone.

Saw this stone being used by a Youtuber and he was explaining about the natural stone mix and the feel. That same day, I ordered for it, and I am not at all disappointed with my decision about buying it. It's a pleasure to sharpen on this stone and it gives a nice edge to my knives. Haven't had any issues with loading up either. I would recommend buying this stone.

Product Features

Handmade Forging

With the traditional forging process, the molecules of the iron material are finely tuned, leading to the completion of a "living kitchen knife" that breathes.


The process of heating and forging each material for mold making is repeated three or four times to quickly shape the blade and create durability before the carbon is released from the steel causing it to lose its original strength.


The blade is the most important factor in achieving the best possible sharpness. It is polished in our own blade factory to produce uncompromising sharpness.


The highest priority is placed on sturdiness, a sense of luxury, and a shape that is easy to grip and does not cause fatigue even after long hours of use.
