The Suehiro Japanese Whetstone - New Cerax #180 Grit (CR-180-GC) is classed as an Extremely Coarse grade stone, best used for heavy blade reprofiling and deep chip removal. This standard size 3 model whetstone is versatile, accommodating a wide array of knives and cutting tools. It's designed to prepare the scratch pattern for higher grit stones, with grit progression being key to achieving a superior, refined sharpening edge.

The Cerax Waterstone by Suehiro Niigata Japan is acclaimed for its fast cutting surface, longevity, and its reputation for consistency and high quality. These stones retain their shape well while cutting quickly enough to create a burr in a reasonable number of strokes.

To maintain the Suehiro Cerax series of stones and keep their surface flat for extended life, a lapping plate is recommended. We suggest either the Jende Industries Glass Lapping Plate, Shapton Diamond Glass Lapping Plate, or the Shapton NAORU cast iron lapping system for this process. This well-crafted whetstone has a dense concentration of ultra-fine air pockets and can be used immediately by lightly wetting it. Under normal circumstances, there is no risk of a loss of quality. It can be used in the same manner as conventional (kiln-fired) whetstones.
