    Has anyone used the Naniwa Micro-usb Luxe? My mom's a chef and she invited a Japanese chef to teach at her cooking school, and as a gift to her he gave her a sharpening stone and a yanagiba I believe.

    The stone is that brand, 1000 grit. Model M32A .

    Yeah. Basically Naniwa's King Deluxe. I'd say it's a little less thirsty; a little harder (i.e gouge resistant); about as muddy.

    I'm sorry if I didn't express ccorrectly.I meant the same brand? I own the King Deluxe, I didn't know it was made by Naniwa.

    If it is basically the KD, does that mean it is splash and go?

    lol no... I'm sorry, I must have radically overestimated how easy it would be to convey this...

    The Lobster mark Micron #1000 grit stone which you're referring to -- the proper model # of which is ID-0410, by the way, not M32A -- is made by Naniwa. It is very similar to the rather ubiquitous King Deluxe 1000; differing from the very well known King 1000 mainly in the ways I've mentioned.

    Neither stone is splash-&-go; both can -- and in my opinion, should -- be permasoaked.

    Got it! M32A seems to be the code, not the model number as you point out. Thanks for the help . Let me soak it to give it a try!
