Product Details

This fine stone will put a mirror polished finish on the the backs and bevels of your carving tools and leave a razor sharp edge. Designed specifically for the accurate sharpening of profiled carving tools such as gouges and v-tools, these waterstones feature a number of both concave and convex profiles. The convex profiles for incannel honing and polishing comprise of three different radii suitable for gouges of all sweeps and a V profile for honing any degree of v-tool. The stone also has five different radii of concave channels for the accurate sharpening and honing of external bevels. These synthetic Japanese stones feature small circular indentations on areas of the stone that are not used for profile sharpening. This is natural and does not affect the excellent sharpening performance. Dimensions: 155 x 60 x 15mm. --- Man has been sharpening edge tools with stones for thousands of years. Until very recently, the stones used were mined or quarried in specific parts of the world where the local stone exhibited all the necessary qualities required of a good sharpening stone, including and most importantly a consistent grit size. With the introduction of new technologies, it was possible to create synthetic sharpening stones with specific grit sizes using a mixture of abrasive compounds suspended in a soft bonding material. As the supply of the premium quality natural stone has become depleted and almost exhausted, man made sharpening stones have have become more popular. Now favoured by many over the natural stones, when you purchase a synthetic Japanese sharpening stone you are guaranteed a stone with a uniform grit size that will produce consistent, high quality results when sharpening and will not vary in quality from stone to stone.
