Product Details

Shaped for the accurate sharpening and honing of gouges, these conical slip stones will allow you to maintain and preserve the profile of your tools. The stones have two surfaces a convex one for incannel sharpening and a concave one for outcannel work. The tapered shape of the stone allows gouges of all sizes to be sharpened and honed with no risk of the shape of the profile changing. Use the 1000 grit for turning a dull blade into a sharp one and the 4000 stone for final honing and polishing. 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.
