Product Description

Product Description

The 24335 Norton Japanese-style 220/1000-grit combination waterstone creates an abrasive slurry for effective sharpening, with 220 grit on one face for repairing a cutting edge, and 1000 grit on the opposite face for establishing cutting edges; this 1 x 8 x 3 inch (H x W x D) stone, suitable for bench use, cleans up easily with water, and comes encased in a blue plastic hinged box. (H is height, the vertical distance from lowest to highest point; W is width, the horizontal distance from left to right; D is depth, the horizontal distance from front to back.) The box protects the waterstone and provides a reservoir to keep it moist. The removable box lid, with no-slip rubber feet, acts as a sharpening station to hold the waterstone in place during bench use.

This synthetic waterstone is created by grading abrasive material to a consistent particle size and blending it with bonding agents. It is then molded and surface-finished. Waterstones have a finer grit and softer bond than oilstones, and use water as the lubricant to develop a slurry, a thin paste of abrasive grains and water that removes metal with less pressure than an oilstone requires. Cleanup is easier than with oil as lubricant. The use of waterstones originated in Japan, where such stones occur naturally. As a result, some synthetic waterstones may be called “Japanese-style.” However, whether natural or synthetic, and whether labeled “Japanese-style,” all waterstones have the same basic characteristics. This stone conforms to the Japanese Industrial Standard (JIS) for waterstones.

Sharpening stones, or whetstones, are abrasive surfaces used to sharpen and hone the edges of steel cutting implements such as chisels, knives, scissors, hand scrapers, and plane blades. Sharpening is the process of creating or re-establishing a cutting edge by grinding away portions of the metal to adjust the angle of the edge and reform the shape. Honing removes small imperfections. Stones can be flat, for working flat edges, or shaped, for edges that are more complex. Sharpening stones are made of natural or synthetic materials that range from softer to harder, and are categorized by the size of their abrasive particles, known as grit. A stone with a coarser grit is used when more metal needs to be removed (e.g., when sharpening a nicked or very dull blade); the stone with the finest grit produces the sharpest edge. Where numbers are assigned to specify grit, they range from coarser grit (low) to finer grit (high). Some sharpening stones are designed for use with a lubricating liquid, some can be used dry, and others can be used either wet or dry. When used with lubricating liquid, a sharpening stone can be called a waterstone or an oilstone, based on the lubricant required.

Norton Abrasives manufactures sanding, grinding, and polishing abrasives, and has been located in the United States since 1885. Norton, now a brand of Saint-Gobain, meets ISO 9000 and 14001 certification for quality and environmental management standards.

From the Manufacturer

Waterstones are synthetic stones designed to be softer than oil stones. These softer grade stones are used with water as the lubricant (versus oil) to develop fast-cutting slurry. Designed in a carefully planned and efficient sharpening sequence. You get the level of abrasiveness that you need at each stage, without wasting time trying to sharpen your knives on a grit that is too fine, too soon.

This stone is quality made and came with a neat plastic case to store it in and sit it on while using it. It has corner retainers on the top to hold your stone in place while using it.

I quickly found the drawback in using waterstones, the wear factor.
The 220 side wore a "dish" in it after honing just one chisel (a new Stanley FatMax) and I realized this stone was going to wear out quick after truing it back up after each use.
I remembered 3M makes a Wet or Dry sandpaper that's much cheaper and so I bought a square foot piece of granite floor tile from a local home improvement store along with some 3M General Purpose Spray Adhesive.
The Wet or Dry paper works GREAT and I've since purchased finer grits of it as well and ditched using the wet-stones all together since they wear fast and are pricey.

The sandpaper method is much easier for me and cheaper, but I suppose it comes down to a matter of preference.

These stones are of good quality, so I can't speak negatively of them, but not sure they're the best route for sharpening chisels/planer blades over using wet or dry sandpaper glued to granite....

This is a great stone to own, especially if you're just wanting to try out water-stones and don't want to spend a heap of money right off the bat. The 220/1000 combination is said by some to be impractical, but that's in the face of many people who sharpen in that exact progression as well as Norton's own designs for these water-stones. Their other stones also skip from 1000 to 4000 to 8000, much steeper than you will see in other water-stones, but the grits are meant to work with each other. I've found no real difference when mixing a 325 and 750 grit in between the 220 and 1000, you just wind up spending more of your time you could have spent just transitioning to the 1000.

The only thing that I don't really like about the stone is that it requires flattening a lot, the 220 side specially. The more you flatten, the faster the stone will wear away. Mine is actually about half an inch thick now because I dished out the 220 side repairing a blade and had to remove so much to get it flat again. This might not be an issue for those that can find the flat spots to grind on, but I think if you're going to be sharpening a lot on the 220 side it might actually make more sense to just buy the solid grit 220 stone since you will need to flatten that side much more.

As far as how sharp it gets... There's way too many ego-inflating, nonsensical "sharpness" tests, and I'll tell you I've achieved most of them with just this stone alone. It will easily produce an edge that will "push-cut" through newspaper or cleanly shave hair off of dry skin with no flaking or catching, and will even split and whittle them if stopped a little afterward.

This is an attractively priced waterstone for setting a bevel on a straight razor. I have used it to reset the bevel on all of my straight razors and the final results, after finishing with a Norton 4K/8K combination waterstone and stopping with an Illinois No. 827 strop, have been "baby-butt-smooth" (BBS) shaves. A good product.

Good grit combo for very dull to dull knives. I have had no issues using this stone so far. 4 stars only for delivery as my first set came in cracked. Replacement came in perfect condition (great replacement policy).

I finally ditched the sandpaper(mostly). Water stones are MESSY, but they cut fast and have a much better "feel" than sandpaper methods. I still use sandpaper for rough shaping or reshaping a bevel, though. A grinder is so fast, I feel like I can't easily control the process. A BIG warning, though. The 220 dishes out so fast that I feel it's almost pointless. In a combo stone like this, it's not going to last very long. You simply have to flatten it too often. Other that caveat, this is a good value. Had I known more about how quickly the 220 side dishes and needs to be flattened, I probaly would have just skipped the combo and bought the 1000 stone. That's not the products fault, it's mine for not believing the other reviews. So, I can't ding them badly for that. If it weren't for that fit would be a five star product

Once I received this stone, I set to sharpening the kitchen knives. I use this stone to re-set the edge with 220 grit, then sharpen it with 1000. I follow with polishing using a 4000 grit stone also purchased from Amazon, and then strop with a leather shaving strop (again, available on Amazon). You wouldn't believe how sharp I can get these knives! I think it might be a man thing... while my daughters, wife and mother seem to like using sharp knives, they don't seem to be too impressed with a polished edge. LOL. Probably they'd be just fine with finishing at 1000 grit. But I really appreciate a well sharpened blade. This is a good stone, a pleasure to use, develops a good slurry, sets a nice edge. I think I'll sharpen my chisels next.

This was an easy stone to learn on. Very simple set up (soak it in water.) Restored the edge on my favorite knives in minutes (and some Youtube videos.) All blades I sharpened were shorter than 4 inches and had no width, or positioning, issues. I used the box it came with to hold it in place, which worked just fine. I can see how others would recommend some type of vice/holder. To other newbies I would recommend having a GOOD flattening stone to accompany this one. Out of the box it was not flat, which was unexpected and not mentioned in description... thus 4 stars.
