Naniwa Jyunpaku

Snow White

 Naniwa Jyunpaku 8k 

Aka - Snow White 

This stone is known in sharpening circles as Naniwa’s ‘Snow White’ stone. It has a pure white magnesia binder that is very telling when honing. Any missed work on the previous stone will stand out instantly.   

This stone is hard, dense, fast, and it leaves a great polish. Personally – I feel the Snow White is harder and finer than the 10k Super Stone. I can’t prove that, but I have used both side by side and that’s what I see/feel. I also feel that the difference between the 10 Chosera and the Snow White is marginal.   

The Jyunpaku is part of Naniwa’s ‘Finishing Stone’ series; its catalog number is IF-0001. There are two 4k stones in the same series - they differ only in size; IE-0300, and IE-0400.
