We recommend soaking the Chosera stone for only 2-3 minutes for initial sharpening. After soaking, you can splash water on the surface to keep it wet. The Nagura stone will assist in developing a slurry for finer cutting. It is important to note that the Nagura stone is not for flattening the whetstone, as this is a common misconception. Once finished sharpening, clean the stone and allow it to air dry naturally in a shaded position. Rapid drying can cause cracking, and leaving the stone in water can degrade its quality.
