This set combines the Global Stainless Steel Whetstone Holder and the Global Medium 1000 Grit Ceramic Whetstone. The whetstone holder will hold any of the three different Global ceramic whetstones. The medium 1000 grit whetstone that comes in this set is the primary grit used in sharpening.
When sharpening knives, scissors, planes, engraving tools, etc, it's most important to remember to maintain the same angle (degree). This applies whether one is using a ceramic whetstone or a honing rod. Apply a small amount of water to the surface. Then hold the knife so that the blade meets the face of the whetstone at an angle of 10°-15°. Sharpening instructions are included.
Great stone, not sure about holder

The whetstone was great, well worth the money! The holder was nice as it lifted the stone to a good working height off the table, but at the same price as the stone, I'm not sure it's worth it. Maybe if it was made in Japan like the stone, but it's made in China and can't cost more than a few dollars to make.
