Pride Abrasive was founded by Matt and Dorothy Hazlett, who began manufacturing abrasive stones in Bristol, Wisconsin, in 1978. Pride’s focus has been to produce the highest quality products at the quickest possible lead times at extremely competitive pricing with a customized approach to each customer. Pride has combined its nearly 40 years of knowledge with a unique water stone production process, resulting in a one-of-a-kind product for industries such as cutlery and woodworking. Utilizing their unique production process 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 prior to use approximately 15 to 20 minutes or till they quit breathing or stop bubbling.
Pride’s 3000-Grit Water Stone is the demarcation line between sharpening and honing. This is a great transition grit for woodworking tools before going into the higher grits or as a final edge on cutlery. Stone measures approximately 8" x 2-3/4" x 7/8".
