Water Stones - Made in America

Our 8" Water Stone Kit provides you with everything you need. A wide range of grits are selected to provide a great progression from coarse to razor sharp.

Our drive to provide the newest and best sharpening materials available is relentless. We are committed to researching and bringing superior products to our customers. In our searches, we have noticed that there are not many options for water stones made in America. Until now. We are proud to introduce the Sharpening Supplies Water Stone Kit, developed and manufactured right here in the US.

Fast Cutting and Hard Wearing

These are well balanced stones. They emphasize fast cutting action, some of the fastest we have seen. Yet they also keep their shape well, not requiring excessive resurfacing.

While the combination of fast cutting and hard wearing sounds pretty straight forward, it's actually a trick to pull off. With sharpening stones, there is a delicate balance between speed of cutting and ability to hold flatness. The two features don’t always go hand-in-hand. Often, stones are fast precisely because they break down quickly and expose fresh grit when used. Stones that don't break down as quickly on the other hand sacrifice some speed of cutting for the benefit of holding their shape longer. We're very pleased with how our Water Stones balance the two attributes.

Harder Bond

Sharpening Supplies Water Stones are constructed with a vitrified bond rather than a resin bond. We find that gives them a responsive feel in use. You can feel the cutting action while using these stones. They feel firm, not muddy or soft like some other water stones can.

They are a soaking stone, and do need to be placed in water for 10-20 minutes until saturated before use. However, unlike other stones that discourage storage in water, the bond of Sharpening Supplies Water Stones will not degrade with long term water contact.

A Matched Set of Stones

Selecting the right combination of grits can sometimes be a little confusing. This kit has made that step easy. We've matched the grits so each grit is perfectly spaced to provide a quality edge with minimal time. This not only makes sharpening easier, but it saved money by skipping grits you don't need. When you have a really dull edge, you need something aggressive like the 220 grit. The next stone is the 1000 grit. This popular stone is used after the 220, or anytime your edge has started to lose its shape. The 6000 grit is the final step. This grit will make that edge shine and create that ultra fine razor sharp edge. After the 6000, the edge will be ready for any cutting task.

The Right Size for the Job

These stones measure 8" x 1 15/16" x 1/2". This size makes it ideal when working with most knives and tools. These hard wearing water stones will outlast softer water stones.

USA Made Stones

This is not the least important point. We believe in sourcing American-made products, so we're proud to say that our Water Stones are made right here in the USA.

Q. Do Sharpening Supplies Water Stones need to be flattened?

A. Yes. While they wear well as water stones go, Sharpening Supplies Water Stones will need to be flattened periodically. We suggest our Double-Time Flattening Stone for the job.

Q. Are these made the same as the other Sharpening Supplies Water Stones?

A. Yes, they are made of the same materials, they are just a different size.

Received my Sharpening System today,(Norton IM83) and I've got to tell you that I am excited about using this product. I've been in the meat cutting business for 45 years, and as you can imagine, I've used allot of different types and styles of sharpening equipment. I have had 3 Norton Multi-Oil Stone units in my lifetime, and then I see this IM83 and I think that this is what I need to carry with me when and wherever I go. I just LOVE this little box full of expertise equipment to keep me sharp and at a razors edge. Thank you for the service, it was fast and easy, and I received it within 3 days of ordering. I know knives and how they work, and I can't wait to start putting that edge on my "other" knives I own.
