Whetstones / Toishi and Maintenance

In Japanese, whetstones are called ‚Äútoishi‚ÄĚ which translates to ‚Äúgrindstone.‚ÄĚ At Hasu-Seizo we carry high-quality, authentic toishi whetstones to help you properly care for your real Japanese knives. We offer a variety of whetstones in all different grits in order to accommodate your sharpening needs, and we offer all of them at prices you can afford.

Keep in mind that the lower the grit count, the more material is removed from the blade. This results in a rougher edge. On the other hand, if you choose a whetstone with a higher grit count, you end up with less of the blade being removed, which translates into a much smoother edge. Chances are good that you already have a specific result in mind when you’re shopping for a toishi whetstone, so it’s good to know a little about grit numbers before you get started.
