Freehand sharpening is a skill built in conjunction with a set of tools. Having quality tools shortens the learning curve and makes the endeavor much more rewarding. This starter set has been assembled to make quality sharpening gear readily accessible in one spot to make getting started that much easier. This kit is built around the highly regarded Shapton Glass 1k and 4k water stones.

These stones cut very quickly, wear out slowly, and are very easy to use since they require only a small splash of water to get started. The 1k and 6k combination is close enough together to make the transition between them fast and easy.

The set also includes a stone holder to give added knuckle clearance while sharpening and to provide a solid, nonslip base for sharpening. The set also includes a hard felt block for burr removal to ensure the edge is as perfect as possible.

Lastly, the 20x loupe allows new sharpeners to visually inspect the quality of their edges.

    The only negative thing I can say about the Shapton Glass stones is that they donít give the same feel or feedback when sharpening that the softer soaking stones do. However, you get great results, they cut fast, and being splash and go, you get straight to business. Less time and better results!

    I was recommended this kit. I wanted to choose the 4 piece stone kit for over $300. If you're just starting or on a budget this kit is great. One should know that 1k and 4k on these stones feel very fine but does a great job of sharpening. It almost felt as if had I bought 4 stone kit that it would have been buying unnecessary equipment.

    I previously had never sharpened my knives and this set has worked great for me at a relatively low cost. The stones are super easy to use, no soaking or anything. It is nice to have the holder, the other things I could do with or without.

    Great starter kit. Hard to go wrong with Shapton GS. The diamond plate isn't the greatest, but overall a good value and perfectly functional for stone flattening and coarse repair/reshaping.
