Note: These whetstone holders smell either strongly or less strongly of rubber. In the past it was easy to categorise whetstone holders: the cheaper ones smelt stronger, the more expensive ones smelt less strongly or hardly at all. Our recent experience shows that this situation has obviously changed.
The smell volatizes with time. However, if you are sensitive to odours, this assurance is unlikely to satisfy you. Following a smell test performed on June 15, 2018, we can offer you this tip: the least smell is exuded by whetstone holders from Japan with code 309800. Less sensitive testers detected hardly any smell at all here.

NANIWA Sink Bridge
This sharpening stone holder is designed to lay over a sink, allowing you to keep your stones and your workplace clean with running water. Forget about the slimy gritty mess normally left around your water stones! The holder has soft rubber pads under the ends to help prevent scratches on the sink edges. The stainless steel stone holder is very strong and stable.
The holder can be used on sinks between 400 - 546 mm deep, from front to back.
It takes stones between 203 - 257 mm long.
Note on sink sizes: If your sink is smaller than 400 mm, the sliding stainless steel bar can be cut short by up to 70 mm (hacksaw or angle grinder). But the absolute minimum width is 330 mm!
Note: waterstone NOT included!
SUEHIRO DeLuxe Stone Holder
The largest sharpening stone holder in our shop offers a clearly better holding power with its larger surface. Stones that are wider than the holding surface can also be securely held, for instance King-Giant Stone
, which is 230 mm long by 100 mm wide. Even stones that come with a glued-on base will benefit from the SUEHIRO DeLuxe Holder, often the glued-on bases do not provide enough slip resistance. Now you can clamp these stones directly in the holder
. It takes just one thumb screw for quick and easy stone changes.
For stones in lengths from 142 mm to 250 mm
Clamping surface width, 86 mm, slip-proof
