Kikusumi Hinoki Wood TOISHI Japanese Whetstone Holder – Non-Slip Sharpening Solution
(*whetstones are not included)
Crafted from beautifully grained Japanese Hinoki wood by Kikusumi wood artisans. Each holder is designed to snugly hold your sharpening whetstones straight and in a way that allows you to achieve precise edge sharpening. We chose hinoki because of its anti-rot and anti-mold properties. Japanese hinoki contains a special oil that other cypress trees do not have. It is one of the preferred woods for temples, sushi chefs and onsens because of its abitlity to endure in wet environments naturally. This makes it the perfect wood for whetstone holders.
Elegant wood grains combine with warm, natural hues that . Splash a little water on the whetstone surface and enjoy the poetic rhythm of traditional sharpening. The chain reaction of ejoying sharpening is your cooking will elevate with beautifully sharpened knives. Sharpen like a pro with a table that looks as beautiful as it functions.
NON SLIP & STABLE
Choosing a stable whetstone platform like the Kikusumi Hinoki TOISHI whetstone holder is a critical step in establishing a proper knife care routine. 2 wide ,wood feet with sticky black silicon sheets attached give a solid footing that won’t slip. On the top bed a larger removable black silicon sheet helps keep whetstones straight and stable.
Once complete remove the black silicon top sheet, rinse and allow the hinoki table to air dry.
LIGHTWEIGHT FOR TRAVELING CHEFS
Shed excess weight by carrying the Kikusumi Hinoki TOISHI whetstone holder instead of heavy metal/rubber industrial holders. Combine this holder with Naniwa thin pro whetstones we also sell here on ETSY. A great solution for travelling chefs needing a lightweight portable sharpening solution.
