Topic tags/keywords: sharpening waterstone

My Norton 1000/4000 waterstone is getting pretty thin and I’m looking to get a nicer dedicated coarse and medium pair. I’ve recently gotten an 8k shapton pro which I’m happy with. I mostly use japanese laminated steels, but I also have a LN A1 Jack plane. For the coarse stone, Stuart at toolsFromJapan wrote glowingly about Sigma Power ceramic #1200 which I’m looking to get.

I primarily like a non-messy, and low dishing stone that also sharpens fast.

So for the medium, I was wondering if anyone had some great recommendations given my coarse and fine selections. I was thinking of a 5k shapton pro. Thanks.

Check out this site,

the Naniwaw Super Stones are great, abeit a tad pricey. I have the 5000 and it works great.
