The Ice Bear Waterstone Sharpening Kit is a premium set of Japanese waterstones designed for axe and knife sharpening. Ice Bear have put together their most fundamental products into one handy kit, and there is quite simply no better set for someone sharpening with waterstones for the first time.

As used by Ray Mears for many years, Ice Bear's traditional Japanese waterstones offer unrivalled quality for tool sharpening. If you own a high quality knife, it's only right that you sharpen it using high quality stones.

For a more comprehensive set of sharpening stones, Ray Mears recommends adding the Ice Bear 1,200 Grit Waterstone to this kit. After sharpening your knife, Woodlore recommend the use of Ice Bear Camellia Oil to protect the blade from rust and corrosion.

  • 800 grit stone for initial grinding
  • 6,000 grit stone for fine finishing
  • Non-skid waterstone holder
  • Nagura stone for cleaning the glazed surface of the fine stone
  • Weight: 2.2 kg

  I have tried lots of different sharpening devices for my deer stalking knives with varying degrees of success over the years. In the end I watched your YouTube video, brought the stones, knives as sharp as a razor, job done. Very happy, thank you.

  I have used these stones and found them to be great. I have sharpened up four old Sheffield pen knives and ordered another knife. I would recommend this water stones set to sharpen your knives.

  Excellent set of water stones, the 6000 grit stone is smoother than a, supposedly, 12,000 grit stone I've purchased from a different company! This set has exceeded all of my expectations!

  An essential product, if you use a knife, you should learn to use this kit. However, I will say that for knives with a curved or miss shaped blade, getting your technique right can be time-consuming and frustrating. But when you get your hand in it's well worth the effort.

  Purchased with the 1200 grit, and with a little patience, knives were much sharper than I had previously been able to achieve using carborundum stones. Also found the clamp very good to use, making it easier to retain a consistent sharpening angle. Great quality and value for money. If looked after should last you a long time.

  These arrived so quickly, I was stunned. Stayed up til the wee hours and now have a house filled with respectable edges. Would definitely recommend.

  I've used some sharpening stones in my life, but this Japanese Waterstone kit from Ray Mears is the best I've used, making the sharpening more of a pleasure than a chore. My knives are razor sharp now, the best they've ever been. I can recommend this kit (with the additional 1200 grit) for base camp or home. Well worth the money that I paid for it. And it was delivered in less than 24 hours. That's what I call a great service. Thanks Woodlore!

  After following Ray's video on the use of these stones I thought I'd start by trying to sharpen an old Mora knife and the results were surprisingly good and easy to achieve. I also bought the 1200 Grit stone at the same time.

  Does what it say on the tin! However, the kit should be sold with the addition of the 1200 grit stone as recommended on the site. This kit of three stones is also recommended for sharpening all kitchen knives, chisels etc. as well. It's been very satisfying learning how to sharpen by working on all my old kitchen knives which are now amazingly sharp and, as a consequence, much safer! Cutting tomatoes rather than semi-squashing them is such a pleasure! There are lots of ways to use sharpening stones so it's best to practise, gain experience and develop the style best suited to the individual.
