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.

  Pleased with this. Used dry and with some water to finish off an edge on an axe - and no doubt will work well with knives. Happy with it and like the rubber container it comes in; compact and holds the stone snugly in place when using it.

  Great price, superb quality product, the rubber around the puck is super grippy which is perfect, as there is no chance of slipping out of your hand when using it. Arrived very quickly too - very impressed.

  For a beginner in the art of competent sharpening of an axe, this was a daunting purchase. I read the reviews and decided that this was a step I needed to take. The purchase as normal was easy and the dispatch prompt and to the usual high standard. Whilst waiting for the order, I embarked on a YouTube how to video fest. The Ray Mears and Gransfors tags got me to the relevant videos. The ease of use was excellent. Sure, I probably didn't use it correctly to begin with, but as with everything, perseverance paid off immensely and the results were very satisfying. I liked the compact size and the size in hand. All in all a very well designed bit of kit and definitely fit for purpose. Thank you

  A perfect addition to my Scandinavian Gransfors Bruk Axe. A much better product than the Lansky's

  Well made sharpener for axes and other outdoor tools as well as an excellent silicone storage holder. Ray Mears is the real deal with great product, pricing and customer care. Thank you

  Excellent quality and consistency. I have bought a few of these from Woodlore, as they tend to end up highly valued presents on various travels. No surprise really. As well as sharpening axes, they`re perfect for sharpening knives, (or chisels etc.) in the field. The rubber casing keeps the stone firmly in place while sharpening. Delivery always unerringly quick and reliable.
