Topic tags/keywords: sharpening stone sharpening

Hey guys,

I have recently started to migrate into using a very different tool set than I used to. For that reason I am changing up my sharpening setup and am looking to sell off some of my sharpening stones. This set of stones would be a great high quality starter set for someone without having to break the bank.

These are all used stones that are in good condition and have been taken care of. I am willing to sell them one by one or package them up together for a little discount. Shipping to 48 is included in the price. Please post any questions to the thread or if you want to see additional photos. Please PM any offers.

I’ll put all the descriptions up top so you can read what each is then scroll down.

Pictures 1 and 2 – $90 – DMT double-sided 10”x4” DuoSharp. One side is 325 grit, the other is 1200 grit. Comes with the tacky mat that will help hold the stone down on smooth surfaces.

Pictures 3 and 4 – $55 – Norton 4000 grit waterstone. 3”x8”x7/8”. Comes with a blue plastic case that can double as a sharpening stand. Stone does have some very small chips and knicks on the corners, but nothing to affect performance. I don’t have a lapping plate, but have kept this pretty flat with other methods. According to my Starrett 12” straightedge, I’d say it is flat to .001 or .002. You can see some wear at the corners. Those portions are not as flat, but make up about 5% of the stone and don’t affect performance.

Pictures 5 and 6 – $75 – Naniwa Chosera 8000 grit waterstone. 3”x8”x7/8”. There is a wood base that came glued to the stone that is about 1 1/2” tall. The stone is separating a little bit from the base, but is still firmly on there. Never has caused me any problems and isn’t affecting the stone at all. Stone has some very small chips and knicks on the corners and edges. Flatness is same as the 4000 stone – flat within .001 or .002 except for some worn areas at the corners. This stone comes with a small nagura stone as well.

Fridge – Was going to put this in the forum post, but didn’t want to bog things down, so I will put it here. To answer your question – I’ve starting doing a lot of different type of work that I didn’t do before. I used to be using planes and chisels almost exclusively in my work. My set shown above worked great for that. I have since starting doing a lot more fringe type of work where I end up using drawknives, gouges, spokeshaves, axes, scorps, etc. A lot of green woodworking tools that are weirder shapes. These tools, especially small curved tools, hollow out water stones way faster than flat tools. The DMT Duosharp also excels more at flat tools than curved tools because of the little swarf ejecting circles on the surface. I am now switching over to continuous diamond stones for all of my grits, with a strop at the end.
