There are this water stones made? Knife clip and rubber base looks like from Chinatown. Leather strap is also not from Solingen ;)

Stones, rubber base and knife clip are made in China. For beginners or intermediate users they are good and affordable stones to learn on/use for occasional sharpening. We make leather strops by ourselves, we buy local wood and leather and glue them together :)

Would the guide work with a folder?

Not really. A typical folding pocket knife will have a blade that is too short vertically (leading edge to spine) and will sink into the guide You could finagle with it, but the guide is simply better for kitchen knives

As mentioned below, the video is really informative. I couldn't watch the fingernail tests! XD Also, will there be a drop for the stone holder and water basin?

Looks nice. What are the dimensions of the strop?

That... that can't be right. It's only 1.46 *inches*, the long way, and only 1/5 inch wide? Something's off in your units; there's no way that strop is smaller than a pen-knife blade. The stone would have to be for ants, just based on the pictures. Looks like your mm-->inches conversion isn't wrong... but the sizing you've got listed on sharpedgeshop.com can't be right. I'm guessing those are actually supposed to be in cm? 14x1.78x0.6 inches?

Yeah, you're totally right, we made a mistake in our own units.. It was supposed to be in cm. I fixed the comment above and also on our website. Thanks for pointing it out, I appreciate it! Best, Grega

Sounds like a pretty good starter set. As someone who owns many stones (mostly shapton glass stones) and strops and with plenty of experience with them I can say that the newbies who buy this will be quite satisfied. That’s assuming they’re pretty true to grit stones. I always recommend people new to sharpening to buy a good sharpening stone and a polishing stone. 1000 grit would be perfect as it’s not to coarse so that if one makes a mistake it’s less obvious. It’s very nice to see sharpening becoming a bit more mainstream.

I’d go for this starter kit here but if you’re looking for a personal recommendation I’d say the King 1000/6000 whetstone. It’s a fantastic starter stone. Don’t rush into sharpening though. It’s a skill that takes time to perfect. Your tools will only take you so far. Technique, practice and patience is what matters most. I’d say sharpening is 90% skill and 10% tools. Watch plenty of videos tutorials on YouTube. Practice with cheap knives at first and work your way up to better ones. Truth is when you first start out it’s very likely you’ll ruin some knives lol. I did when I first started out.

1000 grit as the coarsest stone? I don't use whetstones, but I'd want at least a 600 grit stone to deal with a messed up edge. 1000 will get the job done I guess, but it's going to take a lot more elbow grease and unnecessary wear on your stone. For a basic set I would sell a 600/1000 combo with the strop. Also some compound for the strop.

What about getting the 400 grit stone alone? I noticed it was an option on the drop. You can get the set with the 400 grit as the only stone or as a second stone to the 1000/3000 combo grit.

It sounds like a good idea. I would like them all for sure, the 400, 1000/3000 and 4000/8000 grits. Would love to learn this art, using wet stones. That means making an edge too, and ending with a high mirror polished blade, sharp as can be.:). Maybe one day buy some really nice Japanese or Arkansas stones.

What’s funny is the stone in the video doesn’t look like the one for sale here.

Could you tell us more about the quality on your stones. Maybe vs Arkansas or Japanese wet stones? I would love to buy the hole set, learning this art.

I assume you are a beginner at sharpening? If so, I'd recommend buying our stones (these are also whetstones - with the "h", thats not a typo :)) because they are not expensive, and the quality is good for beginner/intermediate sharpeners. You will use them faster than some more expensive and better quality stones, but ours are great to learn, and then when you use them, the next purchase can be of higher quality stones. Arkansas are very good (and expensive), but these are natural stones, a bit different than synthetic ones like ours, or the majority of sharpening whetstones on the market. For experienced sharpeners we recommend Japanese whetstones from Naniwa. Have you seen our Beginners Knife Sharpening Guide? You can find it here: sharpedgeshop.com/sharpening. Have fun with learning, it's a great skill to have, and not that difficult to learn!
