This Japanese Flattening Stone is useful to flatten your sharpening stones. When sharpening knives with a Japanese sharpening stone, it happens that the latter one gets uneven (more used in its center). This phenomenon is sometimes not even seen to the naked eye.
The Flattening Stone allows to flatten the surface of you sharpening stones by simply rubbing the two stones against each other (after humidifying them).
All knives from Masakage are handmade by master blacksmiths of Takefu's village and hand sharpened by one of Japan's best knife sharpeners, Takayuki Shibata san. When these knives come out of their box, they have an amazing sharpness and will stay sharp for an extremely long time due to Shibata san's masterful technique. Alambika is extremely happy to import and retail Japanese knives (from Takefu village) in Canada. The whole kitchen knife collection can be seen and handled in our Montreal store.
