Detailed Description

Standard Waterstone - 8000 Grit

Stone size is 7-1/4 in. x 2-1/2 in. x 1/2 in. (185mm x 64mm x 12mm) The stone is securely epoxied to a waterproof plastic base, whose footprint measures 8-11/16 in. by 2-11/16 in.

Waterstones cut very quickly and offer a large range of grit sizes. Our bench stones offer unusually large surfaces, wider than most plane irons and long enough for very efficient sharpening with or without a honing guide.

All our waterstones are man-made; their abrasive is sieved for accurate grit size and freedom from impurities, and the bonding process is very carefully controlled to ensure consistently reliable performance. Medium and fine stones are relatively soft, which means that every stroke of a tool exposes fresh, sharp grit and quickly builds an abrasive slurry which is a key ingredient in the stones' excellent performance. Their fast wear rate (don't be overly concerned about "fast", it means you'll likely get 10-20 years (or a lifetime of service), depending on use, before you wear them completely down. The very hard, sharp aluminum oxide abrasive makes for extremely effective sharpening on even the hardest tool steel.

8000 grit is consider fine and gives a nice polished surface. If you need to go further, a 10,000 grit stone is available. For faster stock removal, consider a 4000, 1200, 1000, 800, or 400 grit stone.
