KUROMAKU

Long-selling classic solid stone
Comes with a plastic case usable as a stone holder
KUROMAKU is the world's first set of colour-coded sharpening stones, each colour representing a different grade of coarseness.
The storage case makes it easy to carry the stones, and can also be used as a sharpening base.
These stones are waterstones but can also be used as oilstones.

KUBO

Top-of-the-line lapping plate with diamonds electrodeposited on both sides
Improve and maintain precise sharpening stone flatness
The KUBO plate is a lead-free bronze cast with diamond grains implanted on both surfaces - the front for lapping sharpening stones, and the back for fixing damaged blades.
Just splash on enough water to drench the surface, and you can use KUBO to lap quickly and accurately.
A pair of 8mm SBR rubber covers protect the plate's high flatness against external shocks. When KUBO is enclosed in its covers, it can also be used as a stone holder.

NAORU

Standard lapping plate
Synergy of geometrical grooves with powder
The surface of NAORU is covered with grooves laid out in a geometrical pattern based on the principles of physics. The grooves increase the synergy between the plate and the lapping powders supplied with it, and also improve speed and accuracy when flattening any roughness on a sharpening stone.
Choose which lapping powders to use - coarse, medium or fine (sold separately) - according to the grit of the stone to be flattened.
