#1000/#6000 Combination Cerax Water Stone by Suehiro

17
$105 AUD

The Cerax combination water stone is a great all-round solution for honing and sharpening edged tools. Manufactured by Suehiro in Niigata Japan, Cerax stones are renowned for their fast cutting surface and longevity.

Suehiro's Cerax range is widely used across the wood working and culinary professions. These stones are made from slow-wearing ceramic particles packed inside durable binders that are capable of abrading both high carbon steel and hard tool steels, including chromium and vanadium alloys.

The #1000/#6000 stone provides the opportunity to bring a blade to a mirror polish. The 1000 grit stone is appropriate for sharpening dull blades or retouching edges that have lost their sharpness, while the 6000 stone will give a highly polished mirror finish to any edge.

The stone's housing incorporates rubber feet for safety, stability and ease when sharpening. With features to suit an array of uses, it is easy to see why the Cerax Water stone is a best seller.

For best results, we recommend regular flattening with a lapping plate. We make our own using glass plates and adhesive backed sandpaper. Click here to view glass plates, and here for adhesive sandpaper.

Plastic-free Policy:

Japanese Tools Australia is an environmentally conscious company and we endeavour to eliminate plastics in as many parts of our business as possible. Your purchase will be shipped in recycleable non-plastic materials, and we re-use cardboard and paper wherever possible in our shipping process.

Exceptions to plastic-free policy:

Unfortunately, we are required to dispatch some express items in pre-paid satchels and in such circumstances we have no choice but to use a plastic satchel. Please keep in mind these satchels are 100% recyclable. Our suppliers also use plastic in their packaging of some products, and we do not remove these protective measures before shipping. We are considering strategies to eliminate these two remaining sources of plastic in our shipping process. As many of our items are hand-made, they do not arrive to us or to you with extraneous packaging, though this is not the case for all of our products.

Breakage in shipping policy:

We pack our shipments in specialised materials to ensure that our customers find them in the same condition that we send them. If you receive your products in a damaged condition, please email info@japanesetools.com.au with your order number and photos of the condition of the products within a week of collection. If an item is deemed to have been damaged in transit we will replace it with like kind at no extra shipping cost to the customer.

If you are unhappy with the condition of your product and it has not been damaged in transit, please refer to our returns and exchanges policy. 

We stand behind the quality of our tools. If a tool is found to be faulty or damaged in transit, we will verify the issue with you, and offer a refund or exchange when the problem is brought to our attention within 30 days from purchase. If problems arise outside of this period this policy will apply at our discretion. Where a refund or exchange is agreed upon, we will mail you a paid addressed bag to return your items, verify their condition once we receive them, and then process a refund or mail the new item.

If a tool is purchased as a present or the purchaser changes their mind, we will exchange for stock of equal value or store credit when we are contacted within 2 weeks of the purchase. We ask that the customer covers the cost of shipping in these instances. We will take a payment for shipping over the phone, send you a paid addressed envelope, verify the goods' condition once we receive them, and then mail the new item.

If a tool is damaged through improper use, we encourage you to contact us. We may not be able to exchange the tool, but may be able to offer advice on technique or recommend a more appropriate tool. Where possible, we encourage our cutomers to ask us questions about our tools' use before they purchase them. We can be contacted at info@japanesetools.com.au or 02 9527 3870.

Sorry, we can't exchange gift cards.

Needed to sharpen a few things up

This has finally brought some life back into some knives that have been very neglected. I have a sharpening steel, but nothing like a stone to bring that zing back to the knife. It's a very OCD method to sharpen your knife, but strangely, it is also very therapeutic and you end up loosing track of time when you have more than one knife to sharpen. But the end results is quite impressive. Very glad that I purchased one.

Two Years on, Still going strong

I purchased this combo as my entry level into Japanese Water Stones, I had used sandpaper on glass until then. After half an hour getting used to the feel and realising I did not need to push the blade through the stone to get a good result, I have not purchased sandpaper again. Great saving there alone.. If you are starting out and want a great stone that will last a long time, I would highly recommend this one. Maintenance is easy either on a piece of sandpaper on a flat surface or a diamond plate to keep it flat, (takes literally 30 seconds or less) and you will be taking super fine shavings with chisel or plane, works great on the kitchen knives also.
