    About waterstones

    Sun Tiger waterstones are synthetic. Meaning they are manufactured usually from Aluminium oxide suspended in a clay matrix.

    Waterstones require water to function, so keep your waterstone wet during use. Unlike lower grade stones, water will not penetrate the 6000 grit stone matrix. It’s ok to allow your stone to dry out when not in use.

    Maintenance

    Waterstones wear during use. As the tool steel works the clay matrix breaks down exposing fresh sharp Aluminium particles. This action is why waterstones sharpen so quickly. Because they wear, waterstones must be flatten regularly using a flattening stone or other flattening setup.

    Who is Matsunaga?

    The Japanese sharpening stone manufacturer Matsunaga is located in Osaka Japan. Matsunaga is known and loved world-wide, particularly for its feature brand King Waterstones. They are the oldest and best-known maker of Japanese water stones in the West.
