  • The Gesshin™ 220 Grit Sharpening Stone is a VERY coarse stone for major repairs, thinning, and removing large chips.  I have been using this stone for about 2 years and have finally decided to add it to our gesshin lineup.  It works well on all types of steel I have tested it on, from simple carbons, to the most high tech and hard stainless steels.  It cuts very quickly and has great feeling and feedback.  It is a bit softer, so it can dish, but relatvie to its cutting speed, I have not seen this as much of a problem.  It is possible to jump to a middle grit stone from this stone, but I recommend using something like the Gesshin 400 following this.  This stone needs to be soaked at least 15 minutes before use.  I leave mine in water all of the time, so it is ready to go whenever I need it.  If you do leave your stone in water, please change the water regularly.  When drying out this stone or any others, do so out of the sunlight in a well-ventilated area.
