    Henckels stones

    I can't remember fully well who makes the new stones in the Kramer line by Henckels can anyone remind me?
    I keep thinking rebranded thinner Choseras, but not 100%?

    Thanks

    Those Henckels stones are referred to as ceramic, do you know if they are different than the common chosera line?

    That I am not sure about.... but their grit ranges fall in the normal Chosera line, so I would assume they are no different.

    Yes and also the name would not be Chosera if they were not the same stone I would think, but not 100% sure.

    In this video at right about one minute in he says they're Choseras (Actually says 'choiseras' but whatever...) But they look a heck of a lot more like Shaptons to me...Am I the only one who thinks so??

    He continues to describe 'choisera' as the top stone making company in Japan....If they were actually Choceras, you'd think he'd know the company is called Naniwa...

    Zwilling's Miyabi stones are rebranded Choseras, and their Twin combo stones are rebranded Super Stones. The Kramer stones might be made by Naniwa, but I don't think they're Choseras.

    the Miyabis are Choseras (i have the 1k, and it's exactly the same as a 1k Chosera), but i think the Henckels Kramers are Shaptons.
