The Mizuyama stone is our original line of sharpening stones that gained popularity over the years for its quality. The stone was developed by a natural sharpening stone specialist, Mr. Sugai and his grand master, Mr. Mizuyama, over 5 years ago. The Mizuyama stones are high quality tools that are made for and used by professional sharpeners. These stones absorb water to create a nice slurry of mud that makes the sharpening process easier and faster. Mr. Sugai and his apprentice uses these stones everyday to sharpen and repair knives as well as teach customers proper sharpening methods.

Wet Mizuyama fine stones with water before use.
- Please do not soak finishing stones (#3000 and above). Soaking a finishing stone will result in the stone cracking and breaking.
- Returning a stone into a box while still wet or damp will result in molding and decreasing quality.
- For double sided stone, please only soak the medium stone side (#1000). Failure to do so will result in the stone splitting and or breaking.
