Product Details

This set of waterstones offers you three different grades from the coarse 220 grit for re-grinding and shaping blades, 1000 grit for adding the cutting edge and the ultra fine 6000 grit for honing and final polishing. All of the stones are made up from a blend of aluminium oxide, carbide and nitride suspended in a soft bonding compound. By using a blend of different abrasive particles rather than just one, these stones are better equipped to sharpen very hard steels such as white paper steel and Japanese high speed steel. The softness of the bonding compound means the particles are released very easily and this makes the sharpening process much faster.

All stones need soaking in water before use and should be kept wet during use. All the stones measure 185mm x 64mm x 24mm and are supplied bonded to a waterstone tray. Made in Japan.

Unlike other synthetic sharpening stones which consist of a single abrading agent, these Japanese waterstones consist of aluminium oxide, carbide and nitride particles fused together. This blend is then mixed with a clay like bonder and baked at high temperatures to form the sharpening stone. The resultant stone is soft but sharpens very quickly. The soft bonding clay allows the abrasive particles to release very easily when the stone is soaked in water. This gives the user a constant supply of fresh cutting surfaces with which to grind, sharpen and hone their tools.

Toby Ashton

Great product, first time that I have used waterstone for sharpening woodwork tooling. Overall very happy with my first attempt.

Mark

I had been using the 'scary sharp' method to hone my tools for several years and felt that I was achieving good results - but this set of sharpening stones produce a sharp polished surface faster.

The only drawback is the softness of the material which requires flattening after a few uses - but the edges they produce are very good. I highly recommend this product!

Claudio Costa

Great set! I truly recommend this.
Thanks Rutlands for the quick delivery in Belgium.
The stones work like a charm. After watching a video by Mino Tsuchida on how to sharpen a knife, I had a go, without using any jigs, and was so amazed at the results.
The different grits offered are quite enough and I agree with the other review you'll end-up using the 1000 grit often. I suppose now I need a proper lapping plate...

Robert Whiting

Set of three stones is excellent value and covers the full range of grits - I thought my Tormek could get my tools sharp but sharpening them by hand with these stones makes them unbelievably sharp.
