Out of all the commonly used sharpening methods, waterstones are generally considered to give the best results. And out of all the waterstones on the market, both manmade and natural, Norton stones are tops for performance. Using water as the lubricant, waterstones develop a fast cutting slurry.

By going through a carefully planned sequence of sharpening (ever finer grits), tools can be brought to razor sharpness with great efficiency. Because of the softness of the material, waterstones do wear concave with use and require periodic re-flattening.  We recommend Norton's Flattening and Prep Stones for flattening and conditioning of waterstones.

Waterstones are all 8" x 3" x 1" and come in an individual plastic case. USA

Sharpening Woodworking Tools  DVD

Image- Sharpening Woodworking Tools Video

A Simple Freehand Method
by Joel Moskowitz

One of the most important single skills to learn in woodworking is how to sharpen.

Unlike pretty much anything on sharpening out there, this video emphasizes the basic technique of how to hold a chisel free hand, move it on a stone, and create a professional edge very easily. It's a short video because it sticks to the basics. But if you watch it and practice, you will be able to sharpen anything easily with no more equipment than a set of waterstones and a way to flatten them. It's not hard. You just need to learn some basic hand-holding technique, and you will be sharpening quickly, easily, and with no danger of stone contamination from a jig. Woodworkers have been sharpening for thousands of years, and it's the first thing an apprentice needed to do. Once you've learned the skill, you'll have it for life!
