A Cerax 320 : A coarse grit thats great to start a really dull knife, set your angles, thin bevels, and work out chippy edges. A fast cutting stone that works up a quick slurry and leaves a high contrast finish on the bevels between core steel and cladding, with a little extra time and technique you can get surprisingly good finishes with this stone.

A Cerax 1000 : This is the most versatile stone in our opinion. You can do a lot of work on this stone without too much extra effort, but it can also take a knife to a shaving sharp edge. 1000 is still in the territory of fast cutting and this stone also works up a quick slurry and has a great feedback. While that slurry is great for your edge and bevel, remember to flatten this stone quite often when thinning. We also love the white colour of this stone because it makes it very obvious where you're doing most of your work and its really easy to see your low spots when flattening without drawing a grid.

A Cerax 3000 : The last stone in this set is the 3000 which is about as far as I take normal stainless knives (powdered and carbon are a different story). This leaves a buttery smooth cutting edge with a high polish and sparkle when it catches the light. You can split hairs if you take your time on the light hand pressure towards the end with a little love on the strop. Being a synthetic you'll start to notice lower contrast on your bevels in this grit but a nice hazy shine, with a carbon when it starts to build patina it leaves a beautiful finish.

A Naniwa Truing Stone. This is to be used to make sure your stone is flat which is a very important step to properly sharpening a knife. If your stone isn't flat you'll never get a proper, consistent edge. We recommend using the truing stone between every knife you sharpen. It's important to keep in mind that this truing stone is made of a ceramic abrasive similar to the stone you'll be flattening and if you let your stone go too far, this tool will no longer be helpful, so stay on top of you stones!

A Leather Strop. This is the hands down the best tool to finish refining your edge on. Not only will a leather strop take your edge from sharper to sharpest, it will also help smooth out any inconsistencies left from uneven hand pressure on your last stone and give the length of the edge a beautiful shine.

Due to a shortage from our supplier we made these strops in house. While they are completely functional we are not happy enough with our fit and finish to sell these so they are being thrown in free on top of the discounted bundle!
