FULL DESCRIPTION
These are the largest water stones that we offer measuring 200mm in length by 80mm in width and 30mm in depth. The large surface area aids the sharpening performance, allows for the sharpening of wide plane blades and offers extra support for honing guides when sharpening chisels and knives. These Japanese combination water stones are man-made from Corundum, a synthetic aluminium oxide abrasive, set in a resin bond. Combination stones consist of two stones of different grits which are machine-fused together to create a permanent joint, allowing you to rotate the stones to select the most appropriate grit. The finish that you achieve with a water stone is an amalgamation of the particle size, durability of the abrasive and the resin bond strength. These water stones have a medium strength bond and wear relatively slowly, releasing fresh, sharp abrasive at a reduced rate in comparison to stones with weaker bonds that release abrasive at higher rates and wear down more quickly.

The water stone formulation is excellent for sharpening O1 general tool steel, a steel commonly used to make knives, and are fast cutting when sharpening tough alloys such as A2 and M2 high speed steels which are used to manufacture chisels, plane irons, turning and carving tools. You simply immerse the stones in water and allow to soak for 3 to 5 minutes, at which point they are ready for use. It is important to ensure the water stone retains moisture during the sharpening process.


The fresh abrasive particles break down and dull during the sharpening process, creating progressively finer grits, allowing you to move seamlessly from a coarse grit stone, to a medium grit stone to a fine grit stone. After use leave the water stone to dry out naturally, before using a diamond flattening stone to re-level the face of the water stone. These combination stones sit in a polymer base which has four no-mar rubber feet to prevent the stone from wandering during the sharpening process whilst protecting the work surface from scratching. These combination stones come with a 60mm x 20mm wide mini-flattening stone for reshaping the surface of the stone

This set consists of two large combination water stones with the four most popular grit sizes. The 1000 grit water stone is the fastest cutting stone and is used to remove nicks before sharpening and to shape and establish a basic edge. The 2000 grit is used to refine the edge and sharpen blunt edges, the 6000 grit removes burr, hones and add a razor sharp edge and the 10,000 is an ultra fine grain stone for final polishing and adding a mirror finish. ©

After starting with scary sharp and glass plates, and months of reading reviews and advice etc. I bit the bullet and bought these 2 double sided stones. I went for the 200 x 80 (8x3) so I could easily sharpen my widest plane iron. I spent an afternoon sharpening all of my plane irons and a new set of chisels. The cutting is very fast and the results are simply amazing! My planes can now cut those 1 thou shavings and my chisels are super, super sharp; my dovetail work has ben taken to the next level. Fantastic Stones!!

Really well packaged stones, I had ordered from another company previously where the stones arrived chipped - no chance of that happening with these as they are supplied in a solid cardboard box and have been wrapped in protective foam

A good size suitable for wider plane irons. Worked really well after soaking for about 10 minutes. I bought them because I wanted to keep my expensive big-name brand Japanese stones for best. The finish left by these is easily as good and the price for four grits makes this an unmissable deal.

Very good set for putting a razor edge on all my cutting tools especially hand plane irons. Just soak in water for a couple of minutes and then keep wet as you sharpen the tool. Well recommend
