Introducing Norton''s premier system for sharpening woodworking tools, knives, cutlery and other blades. Their synthetic waterstones can produce a surface that is almost unbelievably bright and chrome-like while putting a legendary edge on cutting tools. Coarser grit stones are used to remove nicks and for first step sharpening of badly dulled tools. Mid-range grits, 1000 and 4000 take that shaped edge to a very sharp edge. 8000 grit is the finishing stone that brings your final cutting edge up and completely removes scratches from the surface. Care must be used to keep from moving coarser grits onto the surface of finer stones, so each tool must be carefully wiped down before it is moved up a step in the sharpening process. Prior to use, stones should be immersed in water for 10 minutes and kept wet during sharpening. 8000 grit polishing stone needs only a splash of water on the surface to cut properly. Stones quickly expose a fresh cutting surface for use, which over time creates a sort of dish effect. Stones may need flattening with some frequency

    Too soft to be sure its flat when done

    I do a lot of hand work so I do a lot of sharpening. I got this to do some coarse work. I like the Norton #1000 a lot so I got this #220. Problem is that the stone's bonding is too soft the face starts cupping in a few passes. A coarse stone is for reworking chisels that are needing a lot of work. So you need to make a lot of passes. By the time you've made all the passes the stone is cupped. You can bet the back isn't flat. Having to lap the stone twice in the middle of sharpening one chisel is just not going to work. Will work on alternatives to this stone. Norton #220 bad, but Norton #1000 good.

    Good value for the money

    The case is supposed to double as a holder for the stone while in use however the the stone is to large to fit the area provided. I will have to make something to be the job. It is still a good stone.
