Everyone who sharpens their knives on water stones will recognize this sentiment: when you finish sharpening your knife your entire workstation will be soaking wet. This Shapton Sharpening Pond is the answer! It is a tub with a rubber edge that will collect all your sharpening water. As such you will not be turning your working station into a swimming pool, and, at the same time, you will always have water around to dampen your stone. However, in order to use this Sharpening Pond you will need a sharpening stone holder. This will serve as the base for the holder.
The rubber edge has an antiskid function. As a result the Pond will not move when you use it. The white insides of the pond are made from glass. This is roughened to make sure the sharpening stone holder also has enough grip.
For anyone who loves sharpening and would like to take this to the next level: when you sharpen your knives you always end up with a bit of slurry. This slurry will be collected in the Pond. When you are done sharpening you can rub the slurry onto a towel to create your own polishing towel. This towel could then be used to polish the sides of your blade.
