In Japanese, "Suehiro" is a traditional name and it signifies "prosperity" or "expanding width."

The type of whetstone you should buy depends on your needs and the types of knives you intend to sharpen.

If you're a beginner, a dual-grit stone (like 1000/6000) is a versatile option. A lower grit (e.g., 1000) is used for sharpening dull knives, while a higher grit (e.g., 6000) is used for polishing the edge. Brands like Suehiro, Shapton, and King are well-regarded.

If you're just starting, a 1000/6000 dual-grit stone is a good start. The 1000 grit is coarse enough to sharpen dull knives, while the 6000 grit can give your knives a polished, sharp edge.

If you need to repair chips in your blade, you might want a lower grit (like 220-400). For extremely sharp and polished edges, some professionals use stones with a grit of 8000 or higher.

The choice of whetstone depends on the condition of your knife and the sharpness you want to achieve. Use a lower grit stone (like 220-1000) for dull blades or repairing chips, a medium grit stone (like 1000-3000) for regular sharpening, and a high grit stone (like 4000-8000 and above) for polishing and refining the edge.

  • Cerax Series: This is one of Suehiro's most popular lines. The Cerax series is designed for professional use and offers a good balance of sharpening speed and minimal wear. They are also known for their excellent feedback.

  • Debado Series: The Debado stones are splash-and-go, meaning they don't need to be soaked before use. They're designed for longer, more serious sharpening sessions and are available in several different grit options.

  • Gokumyo Series: The Gokumyo stones are some of Suehiro's highest-end stones. They offer extremely fine grits, up to 20,000, for the ultimate edge refinement.

  • New Cerax Series: These stones are a variation on the standard Cerax line, but with a faster cutting speed. They're a great choice for those who want a quick but effective sharpening experience.

  • Rika Series: The Rika line offers mid-range grits that are perfect for achieving a working edge on your knives. They're known for their great feedback and reasonable price.

  • Suehiro Small Sharpening Stones: Suehiro also offers a range of smaller, portable sharpening stones perfect for camping or for use with smaller tools.
