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. Soft Arkansas stones are slightly softer than hard Arkansas. Best general duty stone for multi-purpose sharpening. Stone colors may vary.

    Great Stone

    This is the stone I start with right off of the grinder or when I need to turn a burr quickly. Two or three strokes of an edge tool is all it takes to cut a new edge and turn that burr. My stone was perfect right out of the box - as flat as can be! I also own The Pinnacle Hard Black Arkansas stone. My initial impression was not as favorable with that stone (read my review).

    I love it

    I use this to sharpen my knives. I found that my knives were very sharp using this stone alone. With very little effort I finished the edge with my harder stones. I like to use a lot of honing oil even though some people suggest using less. The stone worked better than I expected.
