For someone who wants to try water stones for the first time, or for someone who wants a more portable stone system, a combination stone is an economical answer.
With 1000x on one side and 4000x on the other, it gives you a self-contained sharpening system.
Two sizes are available. The standard combination stone is 8" x 2" x 1". The large one is 8-1/4" x 2-3/4" x 2".
Either one makes an excellent gift to introduce someone to water stones.
