Product Details

When sharpening, oil stones do not cut as quickly as water stones but they also do not wear as quickly. These man made India stones are manufactured from consistently sized aluminium oxide particles suspended in a hard bonding agent and surface finished to be perfectly flat.

Oil stones are porous and require a surface coating of oil to keep the pores of the stone open. This coating also keeps swarf and loose abrasive particles away from the cutting surface of the stone, preventing clogging. As these man-made oil stones tend to absorb oil very quickly, they are pre-packed with oil at the factory. This eliminates the need for soaking the stone before use. These stones are preferred by woodworkers for creating durable, fine cutting edges and are ideal when sharpening to close tolerences.

For the best sharpening results, use at least two of the grades of stone in combination, cleaning the tool thoroughly between each different grade to prevent contamination. The coarse stone is ideal for removing nicks, re-shaping or re-establishing an edge, the medium stone will take this basic edge to a very sharp edge and the fine stone is used for the final polishing. Each stone measures 8" x 3 x 1/2" and is supplied in a heavy duty plastic case which also doubles as a sharpening stand.

Lea Gallamore

Godfrey Moore

Good product and excellent prompt service and delivery.

Alan Bradbury

I bought the coarse stone as I had inherited some chisels which were nicked and some had previously been attempted to be sharpened unsuccessfully with what apears to be a grinder. This stone helps remove material at a reasonable rate prior to using medium and then fine stones to finish the chisels. Fully recomended.
