Norton Waterstone Sharpening Starter Kit

The Norton Waterstone Sharpening Starter Kit utilizes water as a lubricant providing a clean, easier way to sharpen tools.

2 Combination grit stones offer a range of grits from 220/1000 for edge repair, to 4000/8000 for a mirror-like final finish. Each waterstone is packaged in a molded, stackable, hard plastic storage case with rubber feet that secures each stone while sharpening.

A third coarse grit, silicon carbide flattening stone makes it an easy task to resurface the waterstones. Simply rub a well-soaked waterstone over the the V-grooved surface. Then rinse away the removed slurry.

An included DVD demonstrates a step by step, freehand method for sharpening many woodworking tools.

The 220, 1000, and 4000 grit stones should be soaked in water before use. The 8000 stone only needs a small spray of water.

Stones measure: 8" x 3" x 1"

Waterstones are a man-made sharpening stone designed to be softer than an oilstone. The softer grade of stone allows it to be used with water as the lubricant versus oil to develop a fast cutting slurry. The Norton Waterstone System was designed in a carefully planned sequence to create sharpening efficiency. You get the level of abrasiveness you need at each stage.

      Comments about Norton Waterstone Sharpening Starter Kit:

      I was looking for a Water Stone set to sharpen some chisels and plane irons I recently acquired. I researched online and Norton came up often as the set to look at. I have to agree... I am very pleased with the water stones. I would suggest adding a honing guide for repeatable fool-proof results. I bought the Veritas MK2 honing guide and am glad I did. The combination of the honing guide and these water stones had me shaving my arm with my chisels and plane irons in a few hours.

      The only drawback was that the flatening stone included was not perfectly flat on the front side with the grooves. I ended up using the back side of it to flatten my water stones as it was much closer to actually being flat. I think I am going to invest in a diamond flattening stone or a piece of glass and sandpaper for the future.

      Overall it is an awesome product and Jamestown Distributors had the best price going at the time of my purchase.
