Naniwa A-206 Nagura Dressing Stone #600
Pickup currently unavailable
A Nagura dressing stone is a small stone that can be used to create an abrasive slurry at the start of a sharpening session, and also for cleaning the surface of whetstones during sharpening sessions. A nagura does not remove as much material from your whetstone as more aggressive flattening stones do, making your whetstones more durable. However a nagura does not flatten a whetstone, so it is best used in between flattening sessions.

I use it to clean all my ceramic stones. It works great.
