These are the finest of the natural stones, known the world over for their unique crystalline structure. True novaculite, these stones remove less metal than manmade stones and polish while sharpening. The resulting edge is longer lasting and sharper, achieved with fewer stones and less effort. Arkansas stones must be used with a lubricant.It keeps the stone's surface from clogging, reduces the effort required to sharpen and keeps it clean. Oil or water may be used, but if you decide to go with oil as a lubricant, you must continue to use oil since water will no longer be absorbed by an oil soaked stone. Hard Black stones are the hardest and finest stones. Used for a honed, highly polished edge. Stone colors may vary.



  • Stones remove less metal than manmade stones and polish while sharpening.

    Wicked Sharp Cheisels, Planes, Oh My!

    This is my go to stone for sharpening. I achieve great results quickly and consistently. As for others with concerns of flatness... Well I'm ok with 1/1000 @ 6". Heck I don't have anything to measure that gap anyways. Best part is you're buying a USA product from a small business owner. It's difficult to find tools and accessories made in the USA and I want to encourage others to support producers of quality products.

    Disappointed

    I use this for sharpening edge tools in my work shop. The stone was not flat right out of the box. There was a crown right down the middle that was several 1/1000's high. My plane irons and straight edge rocked back and forth on it when I checked it. I flattened it out so that the stone is useable for a wide plane iron but it took over an hour. For the price I think it should have been flatter than it was.

    Cut with a chain saw?

    The stone is of decent quality but the stone must have been cut with a chain saw. To flatten this thing will require at least a 1/4 inch of stock removal. Save your money and buy a good diamond stone instead.
