Beginners Friend

I recently bought the Ice Bear 10K for use as a finishing stone for my cut throat razors. It replaced a Naniwa 10k which I found to be flint hard, and really disappointed me. I had a king 1k/6k combo stone so I bought the Ice Bear. King/Ice Bear are a clay based stone, and are a little more user friendly being a little softer than the resin based naniwa. I am getting better results with this Ice Bear than the naniwa, the enclosed nagura stone helped too. An expensive stone the 10k IceBear, but if your into sharpening things to the max, you just have to have it! Many say they rival the naturals.

Good value kit

I got this for sharpening planes and chisels. It`s excellent value and the quality is fine though for the best results it`s useful to have a stone between the 800 and 6000 as well. Only problem I found is that they are a little narrow for sharpening a 2 1/4 inch plane blade. For everything else though a great little kit.

Great if you know how to use them

I can't believe anyone would leave a bad review for these. I've been using them for 7 years now. They put a razor blade finish on my knives.

These won't be especially useful if you have cheap or poor quality tools & knives. They not designed for rough shaping, they're designed for the final stages of sharpening.

Take some time to learn how to use them properly and you will get excellent results.

You should soak the stones in water for an hour. Just like proper Japanese water stones.

I think Ray Mears did a tutorial how to use these in his Bushcraft series.. It will be on youtube no doubt.

Excellent results

Not sure what way Craig was using the 6000 stone but I found it to be quite the opposite. I needed to sharpen a newly purchased mortise chisel which was badly in need of flattening as well as final honing. Both stones performed exactly as expected with the 6000 producing a mirrored sharpness which today has me reduced to typing with less fingers than yesterday after I got a bit careless free hand honing the bevel and sliced the tips of 2 fingers!

The nagura is also a great addition cleaning the 6000 stone in under a minute as is the holder which is rock steady.

By the way this was my first time sharpening chisels so was a bit of a learning curve. The end result though (apart from nearly losing a couple of fingers) was fantastic producing some damn fine clean edge mortises so very happy with my purchase.

Bad Results

I bought this set thinking it would sharpen my knife quickly and leave a mirror finish on the blade whereas the 800 stone is not too bad at sharpening the so called 6000 stone is terrible it doesnt leave a mirror finish in fact what it does is scratch the hell out of your blade i dont even think its a 6000 stone it scratches more than the 800 so if you want a mirror finish look elsewhere because this kit certainaly wont do the job its terrible.
