When it comes to high quality shears - Masamune and Tobisho spring to mind - this is what you need for a razor sharp working edge. It's a #1000 grit, perfect for regular sharpening but it's too fine to grind out damaged blades (you need a Twin Diamond File for that). LOTS of water, that's pretty much it for instructions.

Niwaki Tip: For good quality carbon steel shears and Topiary Clippers, this is a brilliant stone - just make sure the blade is in good condition.
