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

  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.

  As expected with materials bought in the Woodlore shop, they are working excellently and this non-slip stone holder is super handy. The package arrived after just 2 days, well-packed and protected (in bubble wrap) in a foamed envelope. My sincere compliments.

  This waterstone is easy to handle and gives the knife a smooth and sharp edge.

  Excellent product, left my many blades razor sharp. Would recommend being reasonably experienced at sharpening before using any whetstone though. Very good service from Woodlore, would recommend to anyone.

  Brilliant bit of kit, I wish I had bought these stones years ago. What I like is that you get a really good holder to hold the stones in place, which is a must. I will now be busy sharping up my Erwin Marple chisels and plane blades as well as all household knifes. Also, this was the cheapest starter kit that I could find on the web, so well done to Ray for keeping price right.

  Good quality stones and the stone holder with rubber feet really does help. Being a full time chef, these stones will get a lot of use and I will look to purchase the medium stone to complete the set. Again very nice Woodlore, many thanks!
