Niwaki is a Japenese/British company founded by husband and wife Jake and Keiko Hobson. They source, design, and manufacture very fine Japanese garden and woodworking tools, kitchen knives, and gear in traditional styles with modern updates. Their quality is unmatched and the tools are a revelation for western gardeners.
This is a smaller size of the classic whetstone specially designed for sharpening tools. The concave edge follows the curve of secateur (shears) blades perfectly and they’re small enough to get into tight spots. This #1000 grit stone is the recommendation for general sharpening. Use it for for a few minutes every week to keep your tools in top condition. Soak thoroughly each time before use. Fragile, do not to drop.
