This Arkansas Stone combo can handle your sharpening needs from start through to sharpest edge. This is a great set for knives, plane blades, chisels and, for that matter, anything requiring an edge. 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 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.

Features:


  • Combo can handle your sharpening needs from start through to sharpest edge
  • Perfect for sharpening knives, plane blades, and chisels
  • 100% Natural
  • Stones retain their effective abrasion characteristics and shapes with minimal care

Specifications:

  • Arkansas Stones = Synthetic Stone Equivalent
  • Soft Arkansas: 400-600 Grit
  • Hard Arkansas: 800-1000 Grit
  • Hard Black Arkansas: 2000 - 3000 Grit

What's Included:

  • (1) Soft Arkansas Stone - 1/2" x 2" x 6"
  • (1) Hard Arkansas Stone - 1/2" x 2" x 6"
  • (1) Hard Black Arkansas Stones - 1/2" x 2" x 6"
  • (1) Wood storage box
  • (1) Bottle of light mineral oil

Notes:

  • Start on the Soft Arkansas (400-600 Grit) to create an edge, then switch to the Hard (800-1000 Grit) to further refine, and finally, polish on the Hard Black Arkansas (2000-3000 Grit) to create a perfectly sharp edge. Stones can be used with or without lubrication, but we suggest light oil, which will keep the stones’ surface fresh and free from glazing that could potentially diminish the stones’ performance.
