Product Details

Designed specifically for the accurate sharpening of profiled carving tools such as gouges and v-tools, these waterstones feature several both concave and convex profiles. There are two stones: one for concave profiles and one for convex profiles. The convex stone comprises of two different radii suitable for gouges of all sweeps. The second stone features five radii of concave channels for sharpening and honing external bevels. V profiles can be sharpened over the corners of the stones and flat carving tools can also be sharpened on the reverse of the concave stone.

This set contains both 1000 and 4000 grit sets of stones to allow you to firstly restore the edge of your tools, then secondly give them a perfect mirror finish. Simply soak the stones in water for 5 minutes to saturate them before use. When sharpening keep the surface wet and remove any swarf that builds up on the stone.

Unlike other synthetic sharpening stones which consist of a single abrading agent, these Japanese water stones 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.

I use these water stones on a daily basis to put an edge back on my carving tools. Soak in a bath of water for no longer than two minutes and away you go. Be careful not to apply too much pressure as the stones are quite soft and you can leave grooves.
