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.


Double sided stone - 1000 and 6000 grits

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. Regards Tony
