Ken-syou whetstones are also known as Kensho. Both names are equally correct translations of the original Japanese name. The whetstone box says KEN-SYOU, so that's what I use.

Master sharpener Mr. Masashi Fujiwara-san created Ken-syou whetstones. Made entirely by an artisan, these one-off pieces have made their way around the world in small batches and are beginning to gain a reputation as polish creators. This whetstone is a low-temperature fired resinoid stone containing high-quality Japanese abrasives. The stones are very comparable to Morihei stones in terms of their character and production method.

The Ken-syou stones from #3000 to #10K are Splash-and-Go stones, which means they require only a little water to use. The #400 stone requires water for about a minute and the #1000 whetstone is semi-soaker and 5 minutes in the water basin seemed to do the trick.
