excelent stone and service

First of all i should mention that this web store has the lowest prices available on net. I always wanted to buy a waterstone, but all stores charged very much to post/ship international. I was actually surprised when i saw they charged only 5 G.B.P for posting a nearly 1 pound parcel.
What can i say about the stone. Japan speaks for itself. If you haven't tried a waterstone before, then you don't know what sharpening and polishing is. Just great!
Thanx axminster, if i need anything else, now i know where to find it.

Excellent stone

I have always used carburundum stones for initial grinding followed by honing on a very good 60-year-old oil stone I inherited. Thought I would try a water stone.

The stone arrived the day after I ordered it and was well packaged.

The stone cuts quickly and grinding feels positive and smooth.

If the edge isn't too blunt to begin with, then the 1000 grit side is course enough to bring up a decent cutting edge.

The finish from honing on the 6000 grit stone is slightly better than that from my oil stone. Water seems much more comfortable to work with than oil and overall the sharpening process felt more comfortable. I'm completely sold on water stones now.

Going to save up and buy the 8000 grit stone as soon as I can.

A Revelation

Having always used standard course grit carborundum oilstones before, I bought a 1000/6000 waterstone to use with a new IOShen Mastergrade kitchen knife. What a revelation, the 6000 grit surface brings up a near mirror shine and gives a true edge on the blade - to the point that I succesfully shaved with the knife, cutthroat style!
Now all my tools are ultra sharp, and these stones are particularly suited to hardened high carbon blades such as chisels, planes and posh knives.
Even the fine grit surface is surprisingly good at grinding, so results are swift, but unlike carborundum it's almost impossible to scratch the flat surfaces of blades - no more unsightly marks on my knives!
A pleasant surprise.
