Woodworkers of all skill levels are turning to Japanese waterstones to keep their tool edges sharp. This is because waterstones cut more aggressively, and a precise sharp edge can be achieved much faster than with other type stones. The D1130 features both 1000 grit and 6000 grit, ideal for those looking for a two-in-one sharpening stone.
Waterstones polish as they hone, allowing a mirror finish without the need for stropping or polishing compounds, saving you time and effort. Only water is needed to lubricate the cutting edge.
The D1130 will leave a surgically sharp edge on your tools. The water creates an abrasive slurry on top of the waterstone and leaves an extremely sharp edge on chisels and knives. If you've never tried sharpening with waterstones before, you'll be astounded by the results.
The D1130 pairs well with our D1091 Sharpening Stone Holder which keeps sharpening stones from sliding around the benchtop while honing. To achieve accurate bevels on your chisels, use our D1044 Honing Guide, a must for any chisel owner.
