Made in Japan.

Naniwa "New Super Stone" 5000 Grit Japanese Whetstone Sharpening Stone, NO Stand, 21cm x 7cm surface, 2cm thick. If you want a nice polished and fine edge (and that certainly does seem to be the trend these days, especially among Japanese knife owners), then the 5000 is a great choice to finish your knife edge. It's also quite a bit more fine than 1000 that many people start with, so this way you can purchase just a 1000 and a 5000 and you'll be pretty much set for most regular knife care. Note: these are the new (for 2015) "Sharpening Stone" series from Naniwa which replace the old "Super Stones". They have different packaging, but the stones themselves look and feel very, very similar, and are the same size as the old Super Stones.

They are still very much high-end stones but are one step down from the top of the line Chosera (now rebranded "Professional Stones") which use a different bonding method for a somewhat nicer feel and faster cut but at the expense of higher prices and more fragility. I use the SuperStone/Sharpening Stone series at home and they're great.
