FULL DESCRIPTION
This is our most popular sharpening kit, designed for reshaping and adding razor sharp edges to knives, scissors, chisels and general hand tools. The set comprises of a double sided 1000/4000 grit Japanese water stone (R7504), knife sharpening guide (R7513), honing guide (R7520) and a diamond flattening stone (R7511).

180mm Japanese Combination Water Stone - 1000/4000
The Japanese combination water stone is man-made from Corundum, a synthetic aluminium oxide abrasive, set in a resin bond. 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. This combination water stone is 1000 grit and 4000 grit. The 1000 grit stone is the fastest cutting stone and is used to remove nicks before sharpening and to shape and establish a basic edge and the 4000 grit water stone is for removing burrs, polishing and honing.

Knife Sharpening Guide
The knife sharpening guide is used in conjunction with a water or diamond stone, seating the knife at the correct angle to create a mirror finish, razor sharp edge. Free hand sharpening can lead to an inconsistent finish across the bevel resulting in a lack of sharpness. The guide clips on to the back of the knife blade and by raising it slightly presents the cutting edge at an angle to the sharpening stone. The knife can then be sharpened in full confidence that it is being honed to the correct cutting angle. The guide can be used with any length of blade and can be repositioned along the blade when working on long fish or meat knives. The honing guide is made from a hard wearing, no-mar polymer and will travel over the surface of the sharpening stone without causing damage.

Honing Guide
The honing guide makes the honing of chisels and plane irons fast, accurate and consistent. The guide has two clamping positions and can handle a wide range of blades from fine detail wood chisels through to wide smoothing plane irons. The lower clamp will hold blades from 3mm to 50mm and the upper clamp will hold blades from 35mm to 90mm. Creating the correct angle to hone and sharpen is simple; to create a 30° bevel edge the blade must protrude by 30mm and to set a 25° bevel angle the blade needs to protrude by 40mm. Once set you run the guide smoothly back and forth on the sharpening stone. This premium honing guide is extremely well finished and will allow for precise, consistent, repeatable honing and sharpening.

Diamond Flattening Stone
Water stones need to be perfectly flat to produce the finest sharpening results. This diamond flattening stone allows you to maintain your sharpening stones as true and as flat as possible. It can be used on all grades of water stones and features a high-quality diamond abrasive that allows for fast removal of material. The diamond plate is double sided and is held in position by two powerful rare earth magnets. The 220 grit diamond quickly removes material to flatten your stone and then the 360 grit diamond produces an extremely smooth finish. The integrated spirit level on top of the housing allows you to gauge the flatness of your water stone. A series of perforations on the diamond plate virtually eliminate clogging as they create reservoirs for the swarf to sit in, which is then periodically washed away. This flattening stone is essential to ensure you achieve the best possible sharpening results every time.©
