The Tormek JAPANESE WATERSTONE SJ-200 is a super fine 4000grit and delivers a mirror finish with a razor sharp edge.
Tormek grindstones are well known for grinding efficiency and long life. If you take good care of it, you can expect to use it for many years.
Tormek currently offer three different types of grindstones. All optimized with the special qualities required for different applications.
Tormek T-4 is supplied with the Tormek Original Grindstone. In this single stone it efficiently removes steel and achieves a smooth surface. This is possible because the surface can be changed from a 220 grit to approx. 1000 grit. This leaves a finer surface and sharper edge.
However, if you want an even finer surface, the Tormek JAPANESE WATERSTONE SJ-200 comes with a 4000 Grit. This delivers a mirror finish with a razor sharp edge.
Since the stone is made to create the finest surface, it has a limited steel removal capacity and cannot be used for shaping a tool.
Suitable for many types of hand tools. Including carving tools, knives, scissors, plane irons and wood chisels where a minimum of steel removal is needed and a superior surface finish is required.
Its unique composition gives the stone an extremely long life. Since the surface left by the Japanese Waterstone is so fine, honing afterwards on the leather honing wheel is unnecessary.
The stone’s surface should be cleansed of steel particles every minute or so with the fine side of the Stone Grader SP-650. Do not use the coarse side of the Stone Grader on the Japanese Waterstone.
Fits Tormek T-4, Tormek T-4 Bushcraft Edition and previous Tormek models with a 200 mm stone diameter.
