Developed for professional use, the Debado SNE whetstones are Suehiro's top of the line series for knives. Slightly harder and more wear resistant than their many other product lines, yet still fast cutting and easy to use. This whetstone is great for establishing an initial edge, as well as resharpening dull knives. A very useful grit to have in a sharpening progression, this whetstone removes #300 grit scratches with relative ease, allowing a smooth transition to #1000 grit. For chip repair and bevel thinning, we recommend a coarser whetstone.
Size : 205 x 73 x23 mm
Only a small amount of water is required to begin the sharpening process. Each whetstone comes with a small surface reconditioning stone as well as a base.
Although Suehiro's slightly confusing product code for this whetstone is No.800-SNE, this is definitely a #600 grit stone.
Tried this stone today, it is exactly what I wanted and hoped it would be. What I wanted was a stone that bridges the awkward gap between 400 and 1k. It made my 1k Chosera polish look much more intentional and the edge work is excellent as I’d expect from the range - nice orderly, small burr that leaves a very well formed edge. Great, great stone.
Hard stone, good feedback and fast cutting.
Feels amazing for a #600 grit stone
Best 600 grit stone I've ever used. Top recommendation from a top polisher. Highly recommend it!
