Utilizing a unique production process backed by 40 years of experience and top-grade materials, Pride has created water stones that are long lasting, fast cutting, leave a mirror finish and – “gasp” – are flat within .007 of an inch right out of the box. Stones should be soaked approximately 15 to 20 minutes prior to use or till they quit breathing or stop bubbling.
The 6000-grit level on this stone is where sharpening becomes honing. Lots of folk stop at 6000 grit, while some continue on up the grit scale to 8000 grit and above. This 6000-grit side is great for finishing off a micro bevel or polishing the full bevel in preparation for going to a higher grit. The 10,000-grit side takes your edge one step further –it creates a mirror finish and that “scary sharp” edge on chisels, plane blades, and knives. An excellent finishing stone. Stone measures approximately 8" x 2-3/4" x 7/8".
