This woodworking sharpening kit will serve as a complete sharpening system for many years. We’ve found this to be the ultimate combination for keeping chisels and plane blades sharp. This kit contains the ultimate matched set of stones. The grits progress nicely from one grit to the next to speed up the process of sharpening. Since all the stones use water, the cleanup is fast and easy. In addition, the diamond stone is flat and stays flat. It also allows you to easily maintain a flat surface on the softer water stones.

The coarsest stone in the kit, the Coarse/Extra-Coarse 10” x 4” DMT Diamond stone, is 40 square inches in area, making it more than three times the surface of a traditional 6” x 2” stone. It is so big, you feel like you are sharpening using the deck of an aircraft carrier. The extra size is an advantage as the larger surface promotes faster sharpening. This coarse/extra coarse two-sided stone provides an aggressive cutting surface, and for anyone who’s sharpened a chisel or plane blade knows, speed is important.

The second coarsest stone in the set is the Norton 1000 Water Stone. This stone is a real workhorse. Unless you’re starting with a very dull tool or one with a chip, this will be the stone you’ll start with. This is a good sized water stone and it cuts smoothly and quickly. After a short while on this stone, your tool will be ready for the next stone.

The Norton 4000/8000 Water Stone is a superb stone to finish off your tool. After establishing the edge on the coarser stones, the 4000 surface followed by the 8000 surface will put a shine on the edge that will slice through wood with ease. This level of sharpness is something that can only be achieved with very fine abrasives.

The optional Bench Stone Holder solves the problem of having to chase your stones around the bench while sharpening and it saves your knuckles from hitting the bench by providing ample clearance on lower profile stones, the stone holder fits the 10” DMT Diamond Stone.

  • 10” DMT® Duosharp® Stone (Coarse/Extra-Coarse) - Regularly $119.99

Thanks John, I am so glad to be working with people who know their products and how to use them. You have a very informative and well laid out website and I learned a lot. It was a rainy Sunday and I watched every video and read through each article. The information you provided was very helpful in teaching technique and helping me decide what to buy. Also your products are so well thought out, that no matter what stone you prefer (oil, water or diamond), there is a nice package available for a beginner. All of the products you put together each had their own advantages and believe me, each one spent some time in the shopping cart until I made my final decision.
