At the Woodcraft Vendor Trade Show in Nashville we brought together the three musketeers of woodworking knowledge, Rob Cosman, Your Hand Tool Coach, Scott Phillips of The American Woodshop, and Jeff Forbes, President of Woodcraft. Throughout the week these swashbuckling resourceful idealistic heros of wood covered every vendor booth, talked with everyone at the show, and acquired more knowledge to bring back and share with all of the woodworking world.
I would definitely buy again
This is great for sharpening planes and chisels.
Great stone but not flat.
I bought this combination stone after viewing videos and reading books on sharpening plane irons and wood chisels. It did work as advertised once I got both sides flat, but that took several hours of work on a granite plate with 80 and 100 grit wet-or-dry sandpaper. I almost gave up and returned it, but I really wanted it to work and do what I wanted to sharpen my plane irons. The stone was shaped like a pillow, down at all four corners and all four edges, with a bulge in the center of both sides. But when it was flat, it worked fine.
Norton Water Stone is a Good Product
You should construct a stone holding gig to meet your specific needs -- like quick measurement of the blade extension beyond the honing guide to achieve the desired honing angles...saves time and stop and go frustration!
SHARP TOOLS MAKE GOOD PRODUCTS
WITHOUT THIS PRODOCT I COULDNOT TURN OUT GOOD WORK
Nice stone - great price
I purchased this waterstone to use in sharpening straight razors. I'm sure it will also be handy on chisels, plane blades, etc... Make sure you have some way to keep it flat such as by using wet sandpaper on granite tile or the like. Nice buy, great price.
Great product excellent customer service
