    Default Color of naniwa 12k?

    So I'm about to buy a naniwa 12k stone and was checking out SRD and sharpeningsupplies.com, when I noticed that on SRD the stone is pink, and on the other site, it's pictured as white. Are they different?

    I've got the white one. To my understanding, the white one is the newer version of the stone.

    I think it is just an old picture on SRD.
    I bought my ss12K from there more than 2 years ago, and it is a white stone.

    There have never been put anything up by Naniwa or any other source about any difference except the coloring as far as I have seen.

    Nic, I was pretty sure you would know that the Pink coloring has a slightly Higher grit rating then the White so the Pink Naniwa is actually 12.002 K Muhahahahaha




    Russ you should have kept the Pink one






    @the OP we are kidding there is no difference that I have ever seen ....

    Glenn,



    My pink 12k was broken by my cat Max - he knocked it off my workbench; why & what he was honing in the middle of the night escapes me !

    Have fun !

    Best regards

    His claws Russ, he was honing his claws.

    Mine prefer a coticule but find it hard to use the slurry stone.
