Disagree - a 2 minute soak time is way too little - give it 10 at least.
I have had my full Chosera set including the 8k Snow white for years, soaking it for sometimes 4 hours while re profiling hard knives - have not had a single problem to date.
When done sharpening, I lap and dry my stones and stow them away with a double folded paper towel folded across them....
The stones should not be permitted to dry too rapidly either.
I def agree that the 2 minute soaktime isnt good,just a precaution I take.I am curious if Naniwa is cutting these from the full size stones and some are somehow getting stressed and end up with fractures invisible to the naked eye?
I have ep stones in Imanishi,Arashiyama,Sigma Power,and a plethora of stones from boride and congress and have never had any problems with them.
