    Naniwa does make a "ceramic" range. It is a thin piece, like a plate and mounted on a metal plate of that size.

    a) hard like hell adn it cost more

    b) i have used the 1000 grit also green color > I tried using it over a period of 10 times No joy for me and didn't develop any feeling for the stone. It is somewhere at the bottom of the stone stack

    c)Being me, I still prefer the Super Stones series as being soft, it does give a feedback. Apart from ocasionally cutting into it and it dish faster ( being soft) it is still my main stone.

    Have fun.

    Stay sharp and hv fun..

    The video is shown on the SLT website. The Zwilling Kramers were SLT exclusives when they were launched. So you may assume that SLT and Henckels do have some sort of collaboration. Who most likely produced the video? BK? SLT? Or Henckels? I suppose Henckels should know who makes the stones...

    You'd think that would in fact be the case? But clearly it is not. There is NO company called Choesera that makes sharpening stones, the video tells us there is though. There is a company called Naniwa that makes several lines of stones, one of them being the Choesera line?

    If they can't even get that straight in the video why would you assume they can get anything correct?

    Why doesn't someone contact Henkel and ask..?


    I'm assuming they would get sued for using chosera name if they didn't have the rights to..

    Well, I would like to hereby officially retract my statement that they appear to be Shaptons as it was pointed out by a member here that they felt like choseras, and another who pointed out that Shapton doesn't make the grits that Henckel sells. It just never occurred to me that Naniwa would make a stone that looked so much like Shaptons (glass backing and all)

    HOWEVER

    The more interesting question is is who really cares..Since Henckels are selling stones that are only 1/4 the thickness of Naniwa choseras (the henckels are 1/4 inch thick) for almost the same price....Would any of US by these stones for that price???? Unless the Henckels are 400% better than Choseras seems like a pretty bad deal to me....

    obviously not. =D

    we'd rather get choseras straight from naniwa and not a rebranded one with a lot less product.
