Kensai Waterstones are our house brand. Kensai (which has no direct Japanese translation, in case you were wondering) represents our desire to offer an exceptional line of stones at affordable prices. Our Kensai stones have the great feel and feedback associated with natural stones while also offering the durability of harder man-made stones. Perhaps the greatest attribute of this line of waterstones is its grinding prowess or fast cutting action. Kensai stones cut fast without sacrificing polishing in the higher grits, which means less time creating sharpness in between bouts of actual woodworking. Beginner, intermediate and experienced woodworkers alike will find a great place to start and finish on Kensai Stones.
The Kensai 400/1200 grit stone is our only vitrified stone. It requires total immersion in water until it can no longer breathe (air bubbles quit rising to the surface). This is our softest and fastest cutting stone, with the 400-grit side to make short work of nicks and the 1200-grit side capable of bringing up a dulled edge quickly in preparation for polishing. This is also a great combo stone for kitchen knives. Stone size is approximately 205mm x 75mm x 35mm.
