Yes, Naniwa is also known as Naniwa Mfg (Manufacturing) Co. Ltd. It is a well-respected Japanese company that specializes in producing high-quality sharpening stones and abrasive products for various industries.

Whetstones are typically made of natural or synthetic materials. Natural whetstones can be sourced from sedimentary rocks, while synthetic whetstones are crafted from materials like aluminum oxide or silicon carbide.

These materials provide the abrasive surface necessary for sharpening blades effectively.

In practical terms, there is no difference between a whetstone and a sharpening stone. Both terms refer to the same tool used for sharpening blades.

However, historically, whetstones were originally used with water as a lubricant, while the term "sharpening stone" has a broader meaning and can include oil stones or diamond stones, which may use different lubricants.

Yes, a whetstone needs to be wet before use. The process of wetting the stone is called "pre-soaking." Water is used as a lubricant to keep the abrasive surface clean and prevent the blade from getting too hot during sharpening.

Pre-soaking also helps remove any debris or metal particles generated during the sharpening process, ensuring more effective sharpening results.
