Ohishi Waterstones

We recommend using waterstones for your day to day sharpening and these Ohishi Waterstones are the best we've come across. They cut quickly but are dense and hard enough that a spritz of water is all you need to get to work (do not soak these waterstones). The 1,000 grit will establish your secondary bevel and the 10,000 grit yields a beautiful final polish.

At a wider 3" they easlily accomodate the wide blades used in our larger planes, and making sharpening more pleasant.

I have been asked many times, how long I think these stones will last, given that I have been using the same stones for hand tool demonstrations, daily use and in the school now for the 2 1/2 years, and have taken 6mm of thickness off my 10,000 grit stone and 2mm off the much harder 1,000 grit stone. At this rate I suspect a futher 5 years out of the 10,000 grit stone and 10 years out of the 1,000 grit stone, so, how does that relate to you?

Please excuse the precautions (after all, how long is a piece of string???).... If you use the lapping plate as I do, and flatten the stones after each days use, assuming unlike me you do't get out to the studio every day, I guess at the least 15 years, with the 1,000 grit still going. Please note: keeping your stones flat allows them to last longer.
