One more stone in my collection

After watching Ryky sharpen knives I challenged myself to learn how to sharpen my knives. This stone will be an option for me to use to polish the edge I hope to achieve.

Kitayama #8000

This stone produces nice feel and feedback when polishing. I have no complaints so far and quite like it. I won’t comment too much as this is my first high grit stone and I am unable to compare it against other polishing stones.

In terms of price, i was also comparing another shop selling this same stone. Burrfection was selling the stone at $3 cheaper so I went with them. It was only after I received my order from Burrfection where I realized that the Kitayama 8000 from the OTHER store was significantly thicker and comes with wooden base and nagura stone. Much better value from the other shop. ( photo comparisons attached) This is why my review for this product is 3 stars.

Otherwise, Burrfection has been a great store to purchase from. I am a repeat customer and have never had any issues. Intl shipping is fast too.

Hi Shaun, thank you for your review. We'd like to point out that the thickness (and all dimensions) of this stone is the same as the version with base attached. Whenever possible, we procure stones without their plastic or wooden base as we recommend the use of whetstone holders.


Really fine stone 😁, even a pleasure just to touch
