The Suehiro Japanese Whetstone - New Cerax #280 Grit (CR-280-OR) is classified as a Coarse grade stone, perfect for heavy blade reprofiling and chip removal. This size 3 model standard whetstone from Suehiro is suitable for a wide range of knives and cutting tools. It helps prepare the scratch pattern for higher grit stones, enabling a refined and superior sharpening edge.

For optimal results, this stone is best used after the #180 grit Cerax or the #140 Grit Atoma Diamond Plate. The Cerax Waterstone by Suehiro Niigata Japan is known for its fast cutting surface, longevity, and consistent performance. These stones maintain their shape well while still 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 long-lasting performance, we recommend using a lapping plate. For this process, we suggest either the Jende Industries Glass Lapping Plate, Shapton Diamond Glass Lapping Plate, or the Shapton NAORU cast iron lapping system. The Cerax stones do require soaking before use, but they are not excessively thirsty. A few minutes of soaking is sufficient, and an occasional splash of water during use keeps them working smoothly. It's important not to store the stones in water.
