Product Description

Woodstock SteeleX D1130 1000 Grit and 6000 Grit Japanese Waterstone

Steelex Japanese Waterstone
View larger
Speed and Ease
View larger

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.

Speed and Ease

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.

Surgically Sharp Edges

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.

Optional Accessories

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.

  • 1000 and 6000 Grit
  • 2-1/8 x 8-1/2 x 7/8 inch overall size

I bought this stone for $30. It is more expensive compared to typical oil stones which only cost $3-10. However, a waterstone grinds more uniform and the resulting edges are more polished.

This combination 1000 + 6000 grit Japanese waterstone is 2" wide, 8" long and 1" deep. It is an artificial water stone. A waterstone works fast and consistent because it constantly reveals new grinding surfaces. This also means it wears out fast and one must keep its surface flat by lapping the stone frequently. This stone is fairly soft even for a waterstone, so I need to lap the stone once per knife, unless I am doing a compound bevel edge, then I may do one more when I switch the angle. I recommend getting a diamond stone for lapping, like this: DMT W6FP 6-Inch Diamond Tabletop Whetstone, Fine Grit, DMT W6CP 6" Diamond Whetstone Sharpener - Coarse With Plastic Box or others. A diamond stone not only can work as a lapping stone, but it functions as a coarse sharpening stone. The real important point is not what you use to keep this stone flat, but the fact that you must have a mean to do so. You do not have to get a diamond stone.

I have one criticism. I wish the 1000 and the 6000 grit surfaces are not equally thick. Because the 1000 grit surface wears out much faster than the 6000 grit surface, it would have been nice if the 1000 grit surface is twice as thick as the 6000 grit surface.

Japanese waterstones are known for its unique performance.

I have resisted hand tools and chisels in general because I could never get them sharp enough and it took forever. A friend showed me how easy it was to tune one up on a water stone (once they have been hollow ground) and I was amazed at how little time and what good results came from it. Now, I use chisels and feel it slice the fiber instead of tear it. The combination 1000/6000 stone may not last overly long, but I'll get dedicated thicker ones when the time comes because water stones are the way as far as I'm concerned.

Edit as of Dec 2010: While I don't use this particular stone because it finally wore out, I definately have stuck with waterstones. Many people don't like them because they are messy, but with the polishing stones, you only have to spritz with water right before use. To avoid the soaking of lesser grit stones, I did move to a DMT diamond 1200 stone for the shaping which also only requires spritzing, but still have an 8000 for polishing. Keeping it flat is as simple as a 1'x1' tile and a 220 grit sanding screen. Draw a quick pencil grid on the stone, turn it upside down and rub on the sanding screen and when the pencil marks dissapear, your done. It takes far less than a minute. I don't see myself ever switching - fast and very effective.

This whetstone is great for typical knife sharpening and polishing maintenance. It is especially good if you have a great set of knives that you want to maintain, like Henckels, Wusthof, Shun, etc.

It can be used in about 5 - 10 minutes after being soaked in water. However, it takes about a full day to dry completely.

For typical knife sharpening maintenance, you first sharpen on the 1000 grit side, followed by some honing & polishing on the 6000 grit side.

Alternatively, you can skip the 6000 grit side and hone the knife on your steel rod instead. However, the 6000 grit gives the knife blade a polish that cannot be matched by the rod.

Note that this stone will not fix damaged knife blades. This stone is also not good for dull knives; I recommend sharpening a dull knife on 240 grit first, followed by sharpening on 1000 grit, then a hone & polish on 6000 grit (or hone on your steel sharpening rod).

If you are not concerned with polishing your knife blade, then skip the 6000 grit and get a dual-sided whetstone with 240 & 1000 grits instead.

Received broken stone. I'm quite surprised that after so many people's reviews saying the same thing, you would think Amazon would get sick of paying shipping for everybody to keep sending their stones back! I would think Amazon would be more careful in packaging these stones, but I guess not. Stone came in a cardboard box packed inside of another larger cardboard box with no packing paper, peanuts, or bubble wrap! Pure ignorance.

UPDATE: After calling amazon and speaking with a representative, they were extremely classy in taking care of me and also took the stone off amazon for about a week while they conducted an investigation as to why so many people were receiving the stone broken. After finally finishing their investigation, I was contacted by a representative of amazon to inquire if I still wanted to purchase this stone now that it was placed back up on amazon.com. They then allowed me to place a new order for the stone, and then gave me free over-night shipping.

I received the stone packaged in nothing more than a large manila bubble padded envelope. Ironically, it got to me without any damage whatsoever! lol go figure!

After finally getting to use this stone for the first time, it functions just how I expected it to. I am still concerned with how they bond the two stones together. I am already noticing small chips in the stone where the two stones meet. I'm going to monitor the issue and will post an update if anything develops.

UPDATE: 03/14/2013 I've been putting this stone through extensive use now, and it's been holding up great! I've been careful to make sure the stone does not get banged into anything (including other stones) or dropped. With that in mind, the stone has done a wonderful job on my knives.
