Product description

Imanishin Arato, or "Pink Brick," is a high-quality rough stone. Arato removes metal amazingly fast. Perhaps even one of the fastest 220 whetstones. The stone acts like most coarse stones, i.e., material sheds from the stone during sharpening. I recommend immersing this stone for at least 20 minutes. The stone also dries quickly.

This is the Large version of Imanishi Pink Brick.

Grit: #220
Long:  205 mm 
Wide: 75 mm
Thick: 50 mm
Weight: about 1600 g


This whetstone is a so-called soaking stone. It works best after 20-30 minutes of soaking. After sharpening, immediately wipe the stone clean with a towel. This will give the stone a clean look and start the drying process. Place the stone to dry in a position where it does not touch a solid surface. For example, place the stone on top of a pencil. Allow the stone to dry slowly without additional heating. Do not place the stone in direct sunlight. Do not allow the stone to freeze when wet. It takes more than 24 hours to dry. Store the stone protected from dents, e.g., in its box.

Little experience yet, feeling harder than I was expecting. Looks to be a useful coarse stone
