Naniwa Stone Holder (Toishi Dai)
The Naniwa Stone Holder secures your stone while sharpening or flattening. It has good traction with the rubber mounts and sufficient weight to keep from moving around. Holds stones from 5.5 to 9 inches in length.
This is good quality stainless steel that won't rust out on you. We tested one leaving it in the water overnight and pulling it out in the daytime as we used it. Other models rusted on us within days. The Naniwa never rusted after two months, and the screw downs still move smoothly. Now, these shouldn't be left in the water and we're not suggesting that. But if it gets accidentally left in the soak tank, it's not going to be a problem.
