Known outside Japan under the Bester brand, Imanishi has produced high-quality whetstones in Kyoto. I have picked out the most sought-after and best-known Imanishi stones for sale. The Bester series 220, 400, and 1200 are the most well-known and highest quality soaking stones, and the 4000, 6000, and 8000 respectively have gained a reputation as Splash-and-Go stones and especially for sharpening carbon steel.
