Product Details

These premium conical Japanese water stones are designed for the accurate sharpening and honing of wood carving gouges and other tools with rounded blades. The stones feature both convex and concave radii profiles for in-cannel and out-cannel sharpening of tool blades. The tapered shape of the stones allows gouges of all sizes to be sharpened and honed with no risk of the shape of the profile changing.

These water stones are man-made from Corundum, a synthetic aluminium oxide abrasive, set in a resin bond. The finish that you achieve with a water stone is a combination 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 is 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.

To use the stones you simply immerse them in water and allow to soak for 3 to 5 minutes. It is important to ensure the waterstone 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 1000 grit stone to the fine 3000 grit stone for mirror finishing. After use leave the water stone to dry out naturally.

This set of 2 consists of 1000 and 3000 grit water stones. The stones measure 160mm in length and have a width that tapers from 60mm down to 20mm. These Japanese water stones have a lifetime warranty and in the event that they fail due to a material or manufacturing defect will be replaced free of charge.

Liam Milton

Very happy with this set of two stones, they are perfect for hand sharpening the array of gouges that I have. I always initially use the coarse 1000 grit stone, then use the fine 3000 grit stone to leave a mirror finish. The stones are very good quality and I would recommend them. 5 stars.

Chris Green

Just the job for sharpening turning chisels and gouges. I much prefer using waterstones to an electric sharpener as I feel I can gauge and control the sharpening more freely. These stones work great to get a good consistent honed edge with no flat spots, I use them daily and highly recommend to keep your tools in shape.
