High quality sharpening product

I have used both these stones for years and find I get a superb edge especially when I finish up on my 10000 grit stone. Unlike another reviewer here I have NEVER experienced scratching at 6000 grit. If its really that bad you need to return it to Axminster as either you are doing something wrong or you aren't keeping the stone emersed in water when not in use. Excellent product for final honing..

For beginners

These stones are just an introduction to Japanese water-stones, the reviewer who compared them to a Naniwa simply doesn’t know stones. Also be aware that these stones are only easily useable if you have scandi ground knives or for entry level chisels. If you have quality high carbon steel edges, best to learn hand stoning

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.
