Natural whetstones have a unique sharpening quality. For example, a Japanese sword sharpened with a natural finishing whetstone has an indescribable glow and beautiful pattern on its surface. This kind of polishing quality is the distinctive character of natural whetstones. However, there are drawbacks of natural whetstones. For example, they sometimes contain some impurities, which leave scratches on knives. Also, they are likely to break naturally and have a different consistency. Furthermore, they are quite expensive. These are the reasons why people do not try to use natural whetstones.
So, we made further investigation to produce whetstones with reasonable price, user-friendliness, and stable quality. Finally, we succeeded in producing the synthetic whetstones now we have. Synthetic whetstones are often thought to be inferior to natural ones in its value, however, in terms of coarse and medium sharpening, synthetic whetstones are actually superior to natural whetstones. We manage the whole manufacturing process of whetstones from R&D to production aiming to maximize the quality of sharpening, which rival or surpass natural stones.
