Where to buy decent water stones in the UK?

Recommended Posts

Would anyone be able to recommend a supplier of quality water stones (e.g. Shapton) that could deliver to the UK? I've been struggling to find anything online, it seems odd that sites sell high quality Japanese knives that should be sharpened with a whetstone but don't sell anything appropriate!

I use a King (1000/6000) combination stone (at about 20 quid a pop from http://www.axminster.co.uk ) for both western and hocho knives - good value, I thought.

If you're a bit more descerning (than I) try http://www.fine-tools.com/japwas.htm

You would have to inquire about shipping, but the guy who runs JapaneseKnifeSharpening.com is a pleasure to deal with.
