The Gransfors Bruks Ceramic Axe Grinding Stone is the perfect tool for repairing everyday wear and tear to the cutting edge of your axe or knife. It comprises of a hockey puck-shaped stone with two separate sharpening surfaces; a coarse side for repairing heavy wear, and a fine side for regular sharpening. This product carries an exclusive Ray Mears Bushcraft logo on the casing.

With its dual-grain sharpening surfaces, this is the only Axe Stone you will need when in the field. It makes the perfect partner to the Gransfors Bruks Axe File, which should be used first when heavier damage has been inflicted to the cutting edge.

The ceramic composite of this stone provides strength and durability, while the bevelled edge helps to prevent chipping. Two thirds of the stone's thickness comprises of the finer, 600 grit side, as this is usually the surface that is used and thus worn down most. The stone comes in a protective rubber case, which also helps to keep the stone in place while in use.

This particular stone is a manmade alternative to the Gransfors Bruks Original Axe Stone which, due to a lack of natural materials, is no longer available. By way of extensive testing, this ceramic version has proven to be just as effective as - if not superior to - its predecessor.

The Gransfors Bruks Ceramic Axe Grinding Stone can be used dry, but it is recommended that you use it with a small amount of water. After sharpening your axe, Woodlore recommend the use of Ice Bear Camellia Oil to protect the blade from rust and corrosion.

  This has proved to be the perfect kit bag item for keeping an edge on my Gransfors Bruks axe whilst on the move. Highly recommended for extended journeying.

  I had cause to use this stone on my brand new small forest axe after chipping the cutting edge slightly on a stone in my carving block. I used this stone to follow up a bahco bastard cut file and got great results right away with not too much previous experience. My axe is now cleanly slicing thin paper and feels sharper and with a finer finish on the bevel than when delivered. The stone doesn’t require pre-soaking and is ready to go with a quick dip in water (as demonstrated to me by Ray Mears on an experience day).

  A good quality double sided sharpening/grinding stone. I particularly like the way it fits in the hand and comfortable to use. As always from Gransfors, it's not cheap but I believe worth it.

  I used only once, for my Gransfors Bruks Small Splitting Axe and no complaints! One side is a very fine stone.

  I like the innovative storage of the stone in two rubber caps. Used it to sharpen my Ray Mears splitting axe. I used it dry but might be better to use wet, no supplied instructions.

  After using my axe for some time I dulled the edge as you might expect. I used the Gransfors stone that I purchased with it and it came back to razor sharp again without too much effort. I have also used it to bring an edge back on a kitchen knife. It is an excellent stone and is small enough to carry in your pocket. I can recommend this sharpener wholeheartedly.

  I have had one of these before and it doesn't seem to have changed, but then it didn't need to, it does what it is supposed to do! Just concentrate on creating an even polish/edge. (I find holding the axe still and moving the stone the best method).
