I agree. It is a very adequate, and comparatively inexpensive sharpening system. However I settled on Shapton Stones with a SharpSkate honing guide and freehand as my sharpening method for woodworking chisels and blades. Also because of a small shop with limited storage I am selling all the tools I have that are not used on a regular basis. This is freeing up space and creating a more efficient and pleasant working environment. Lastly, the job I had for 28 years will end Sept 29, as the company is closing it’s doors for good. I will be living by my wits until such a time as I will be able to retire.

That’s a good buy for someone. Tons of thickness left on the stones. The chip on the 8000 wouldn’t bother me too much. Do you find the Shaptons noticeably superior? I’ve got more stones than brains, but I wish you luck selling this package.

I do not find the Shaptons to be any faster cutting or produce a superior edge with the same grit (apple to apple comparison). As a matter of fact the Norton 220 is great for flattening backs or establishing a bevel angle quickly. What I like about Shapton is they take less space to store, and I do not need to soak the stone in water before using. I am a sharpening snob, (yes, I have tried the 12 step program – I just cant help myself) I use 16000 and 32000 grit stones to get a very shiny mirror finish even tho it is rarely necessary. However it gives me pleasure and satisfaction for some weird reason that we do not need to examine in this post.

I think it is good to know that you have to soak the stones I too own many sets of stones But could recommend this set to a guy just getting into stones. I have to tell you I don’t like my Shapton stones this week as much as I did 3 weeks ago. Recently I was sent a set of Professional stones From Naniwa. The Chrosa Stones they sell are harder and don’t dish as quickly as the Shapton’s do. Also I get over two times as much stone for the money. Naniwa is one of the oldest abrasive manufacturing company’s in Japan they have been in business close to 70 years. The Chrosa stones come with a nagura stone don’t think I spelled that right with each grit also the stones come with their own stand no extra stands to buy. I liked these so much I have decided to be and importer of the stones So the next time you need a stone set look me up I will be selling these for years to come .
