The beginner's set is the most cost-effective solution for anyone who wants to learn professional bench stone sharpening and grants good results with little effort. The included grinding stone holder ensures a secure hold of the abrasives on the base plate of the system, a special low-odor rubber compound ensures that nothing slips on the system. The Ohishi Toishi combination in #1000 and #6000 is very easy to use, resulting in a quick learning curve with good results. The Atoma diamond plate with #400 causes a good removal of damaged or very blunt blades and provides a considerable service life due to high quality diamonds. If the diamonds are used up, it is possible to remove the diamond film from the plate and stick on a new film. A spray bottle for additional wetting of the whetstones is indispensable and is a fixed component of every whetstone set. Although many grindstones need to be soaked in water for about 5 minutes before use, their surface dries noticeably quickly and the use of a pump sprayer prevents the grit from remaining on the grinding surface. Generally, a wetted surface is recommended to bind the grit to the stone and not smear the grit.
Here you will find a summary of the advantages of the starter set:
- Good basis for entry
- Cheap to buy
- Good results with a small choice of bench stones
