The Morihei series is a synthetic whetstone made from natural stone powder. I have found this series to be one of the best for carbon steel. This stone is a Splash-n-Go stone, meaning it requires only a little water to work. The quickest way to get the most out of the stone is to water it and rub the surface with a flattening stone. You can get the surface slurry right out of the box. Morihei stones could be classified as medium-hard stones. Sharpening and especially polishing with these stones is an enjoyable operation.
In addition to the 1000 stones, the Morihei Pack includes my absolute favorite Morihei stone, the 4000 stone. This stone shows what this series is all about. The flattening stone is the Suehiro 280, which effectively takes care of surface opening and flattening as a large stone. Also included is the all-important Naniwa stone stand.
You can extend this Pack with other whetstones like Morihei 500. These stones performed well in the sharpening video below. I have heard that customers have good results when sharpening chisels with Morihei whetstones. In this series, we also have legendary stones like MORIHEI "Karasu" 9000. This is a stone that straight razor users love.
"Splash-and-Go" stones do not like long-term storage in water. Use only as much water as the stone requires. Do not immerse stones in a pool of water. After sharpening, wipe the stone immediately with a towel. This will make the stone look clean and get the drying process started. Place the stone to dry in such a position that it does not touch a solid surface. Put the stone lying on top of a pen, for example. Allow the stone to dry slowly and quietly, without separate additional heating. Do not place the stone in direct sunlight. And do not allow the stone to freeze when wet. It takes more than a day to dry. Store the stone protected from knocks, e.g., in its box, without any original foam padding. When wet, do not put the whetstone in a plastic bag.
