Hard Arkansas stones have a grit range of 800-1000 grit and will sharpen and further refine an already sharp edge to a “keen” edge. This Hard Arkansas Multiform Slipstone measures 4" x 2", with a round edge and knife edge that taper from 1/2" to 1/8". It is used by carvers to sharpen and hone V-tools, veiners and gouges, but it can put a keen edge on serrated knives as well. The stone comes in a protective case with a pouch and a small bottle of light mineral oil. Stone can be used with or without lubrication, but we suggest light oil, which will keep the stone’s surface fresh and free from glazing that could potentially diminish the stone’s performance.

RH Preyda Arkansas Stones
RH Preyda’s 100% natural Arkansas stones are made from Novaculite quarried in the Ouachita Mountains, near Hot Springs, Arkansas. The unique cryptocrystalline structure and density are the keys to the stones retaining their effective abrasion characteristics and shapes with what amounts to minimal care.
Arkansas Stones and Grit.
Arkansas stones are graded on hardness and not grit, but grit is an easier concept for most to grasp so a grit equivalent is offered as a comparison to synthetic stones. The grit range of natural stones will vary, so in most cases a range of grit is offered – again as a comparison to synthetic stones.

    Profile not as pictured.

    Ordered and received Preyda #30867 hard Arkansas stone. This stone has a large and a small rounded over edge. It does not have the flattened edge as shown in the picture. Not happy but will keep as it does have use for me. I previously bought the #30866 soft Arkansas stone which does have the correct profile as shown.
