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.
