Product Description

Product Description

Steelex Japanese Deluxe Water Stone, 1200 Grit D1069

From the Manufacturer

To achieve a surgically sharp edge on your tools, nothing works faster or better than Japanese Water Stones. The abrasive slurry produced on top of the stone cuts aggressively and polishes the blade as it sharpens. If you've never tried sharpening with water stones before, you'll be astounded by the results.

Customer Reviews

Spend the cash, you will be happy that you did.

This is a quality stone that has allowed me to do some very good medium work with my knives.
Thomas Gates
The edge it can create is sharp, but probably only as sharp as a typical new knife.

This was my first Japanese waterstone.

Some things I didn't realize before I purchased:
1) It's recommended that the stone is kept immersed in water during storage. Otherwise, soak it for 15 minutes in water before use.

2) It's much softer than a traditional whetstone.

3) Honing oil will destroy it.

4) It's much larger than I expected (good).

My first test was on a Mora knife of 57 HRC (advertised). There was quite a bit of slurry produced in the initial sharpening. Unfortunately, the Mora had shipped with a edge burr that was not easily removed with this stone. I went back to a traditional 800 grit stone and removed the burr, then went back and finished with the Japanese waterstone. It gave a very good edge, probably as good as a higher grit with a traditional stone.

I also used it on some Wenger SAKs and it performed well.

This is very fine wet stone. Requires care in use. If you are a person who just wants to sharpen your knife in 2 seconds this product is not for you. For one this it is recommended that the stone is placed constantly in water, or at the very least for 15 minutes before every use. You cannot use oil on this stone because it will ruin the stone (thus the name). On the positive side it sharpens the knife very finely and I have very good experince with it thus far.

First off, I am a sushi chef that has worked in the business for 4 years. I have owned Japanese style sushi knives, traditional chef knives, santokus, gyutos, debas, and small knives.

This stone is not great. It's not horrible, but for a japanese whet stone at medium grit, it wears away relatively quick. Granted, I did not use a nagura stone when I sharpened, but after 30 min of sharpening one of my knives, I could feel the stone beginning to bow in the middle, even as I made sure to sharpen across the whole surface of the stone. The stone's slurry isn't a great quality and the metal ground away from the knife doesn't really stay on the whetstone. It's important for a stone to have a good slurry with metal mixed in for the benefit of your knife, but I feel like there are better options than this stone.

I am not a professional knife sharpener, I learned how to sharpen my knifes on my own, so some people may disagree with what I think. If you feel I have said something that is incorrect, please contact me and I am willing to learn.

Don't get me wrong, this stone works, and I was able to develop a fine and sharp edge on my knives, but I simply think that other Japanese whet stones, such as King Brand Deluxe Waterstone, 1000 Grit are less likely to wear away as much when sharpening. In the end, I feel that for a few dollars more, you can get longer usage out of a different whetstone.

For those that have only a few knives and do not sharpen them very much, I think this is a good stone to learn with. It's a soft stone that is lenient on a knife edge and blade. For learning purposes, I recommend this one. You probably won't get to the point of sharpening as frequently as me for a few years. But for professional use I prefer others.

My husband loves this new stone.....says it's the best he's ever had. This is the first water stone he's had....before he's had stones where he used oil when sharpening his blades. He has sharpened my kitchen knives with this stone, too. It's been great having sharp knives...lol!!

This was my first experience with a water-stone...and am very pleased with
the results.I bought a top-quality set of Henckel kitchen knives and used this
stone to create a good edge.It was very easy....7-10 strokes on each side with
a 20-22 degree angle....the knives are more than sharp for my basic use.Take
your time to do a good job and you will be more than pleased with the result.
I highly recommend this stone

I very rarely endorse anything, but this works. You need to follow instructons on how to care for it but that is very simple. I watched 2 instructional videos on how to sharpen using this stone. If you follow the instructions you will have knives with a surgically sharpe edge every time.Just follow instructions.

I sharpened 5 kitchen knives to a razor sharpness, which I was able to remove hair from my wrist effortlessly (after stropping the knives).

The stone held up very well. While it imparted a nice amount of 'slur', it looked almost brand new after I rinsed it off. I suppose much of this has to do more so with technique than the stone--but it was good to see that the stone was not too soft. The stone took about 10 minutes to fully soak.

No complaints whatsoever. It's a great stone and will serve exactly as expected.

I never hand sharpened with water stones before. Not sure if my bevel angles are 100% correct but the knives are sharp. After 10 years my expensive knives were pretty dull and now they are good. I bought this and the 800 grit stone. About 10 minutes work on each knife and they are cutting well again.
