This Japanese water stone kit ensures precise shaping and sharpening of fine edge woodworking tools, such as plane blades, chisels, carving tools and knives. The Corundum stone wears slowly, releasing fresh, sharp abrasive during use, whilst the honing sled locks at any angle from 10-60° or can be left unlocked to copy an existing bevel angle.

FULL DESCRIPTION

This Japanese water stone kit ensures precise shaping and sharpening of fine edge woodworking tools, such as plane blades, chisels, carving tools and knives. The set comprises of an extra large, double sided 2000/10000 grit Japanese water stone (R7509) and a honing guide sled (R7515). 

200mm Japanese Combination Water Stone - 2000/10000
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 2000 grit and 10000 grit. The 2000 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 10000 grit water stone is for removing burrs, polishing and honing.

Honing Guide Sled
The honing guide sled allows for fast, consistent and accurate honing of wood chisels and plane irons. Precision CNC machined from aircraft grade aluminium the sliding carriage glides back and forth on a stainless steel bar, travelling through a housing which features 50 micro ball-bearings, ensuring a smooth, effortless movement with no lateral play. The head uses a clamping bar that registers on the face of the blade and accepts flat and tapered blades up to 9mm thick and 52mm wide. A series of parallel lines are etched onto the head to ensure the chisel or plane iron sits square to the jig. You can lock-off the head at your desired honing angle anywhere from 10-60° using an Allen key or as favoured by most, you can leave the head unlocked and simply copy the existing angle of the blade edge. The base of the jig accepts water stones from 160mm to 200mm in length and up to 80mm in width, held in position using the aluminium clamping block. This sled, unlike a traditional hand held honing guide eliminates any lateral or longitudinal play, allowing the blade to smoothly, consistently and accurately move over the sharpening stone. ©

What a wonderfully engineered well thought out pie...

What a wonderfully engineered well thought out piece of kit ! This will not only speed up your sharpening process but take a lot of the guess work out of it too. The engineering looks and feels robust and sturdy and finished well...after inspection not one sharp edge or dodgy thread anywhere and very swift delivery. Thank you Rutland's...another quality product at much less than some other similar premium products.

Wow what a product, if only I knew this existed ye...

Wow what a product, if only I knew this existed years ago it would have saved so much time compared to setting up manual honing guides. All you have to do is insert the chisel into the holder ( tip - the length inserted determines the sharpening angle ) and sharpen. Very easy to switch between grits of stone while the blades is clamped which means you can return to the same sharpening angle.

This is an excellent kit with a honing

This is an excellent kit with a honing sled made in heaven! It has all you need to keep all of your edges glinty keen. But that sled though! It is built so well it will be here long after I am gone. I wonder who I will leave it to in my will? Once again.. excellent tools from an excellent company. Rutlands. Now..what can I find that needs sharpening?.........

I do a lot of sharpening of chisels and plane blades and I have never found a product that gives consistent results like this. I simply lock the jig off at my desired angle and sharpen then hone the blade as required.
