Product Description

Product Description

The Norton 614636855653 IB8 India 100/320-grit combination oilstone is made of aluminum oxide with 100 grit on one face for repairing steel cutting edges and 320 grit on the opposite face for sharpening and maintaining them; it produces durable, smooth-cutting edges, and is preferred for close tolerances. This oilstone is used to restore cutting edges on straight-edged tools, such as chisels, knives, plane blades, and precision instruments. The stone is prefilled with oil to save time and eliminate the need to presoak it prior to use. The oil prevents metal from bonding with the abrasive surface by flushing away dislodged abrasive and metal chips.

This aluminum oxide stone has a tough fracture- and wear-resistant grit that is more durable than silicon carbide and capable of sharpening to very close tolerances. It is created by grading aluminum oxide to a consistent particle size and blending it with bonding agents. It is then molded and surface-finished. This 1 x 8 x 2 inch (H x W x D) stone, suitable for bench use, is harder and more durable than a waterstone. (H is height, the vertical distance from lowest to highest point; W is width, the horizontal distance from left to right; D is depth, the horizontal distance from front to back.) It conforms to the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) abrasive grit standards.

Sharpening stones, or whetstones, are abrasive surfaces used to sharpen and hone the edges of steel cutting implements, such as chisels, knives, scissors, hand scrapers, and plane blades. Sharpening is the process of creating or re-establishing a cutting edge by grinding away portions of the metal to adjust the angle of the edge and reform the shape. Honing removes small imperfections. Stones can be flat, for working flat edges, or shaped, for edges that are more complex. Sharpening stones are made of natural or synthetic materials that range from softer to harder, and are categorized by the size of their abrasive particles, known as grit. A stone with a coarser grit is used when more metal needs to be removed (e.g., when sharpening a nicked or very dull blade); the stone with the finest grit produces the sharpest edge. Where numbers are assigned to specify grit, they range from coarser grit (low) to finer grit (high). Some sharpening stones are designed for use with a lubricating liquid, some can be used dry, and others can be used either wet or dry. When used with lubricating liquid, a sharpening stone can be called a waterstone or an oilstone, based on the lubricant required.

Norton Abrasives manufactures sanding, grinding, and polishing abrasives, and has been located in the United States since 1885. Norton, now a brand of Saint-Gobain, meets ISO 9000 and 14001 certification for quality and environmental management standards.

From the Manufacturer

IB8 Combination India bench oilstones have 2-Grit on opposite sides of each stone, reducing the cost of owning a variety of grit sizes for sharpening. Coarse India at on one side is a medium cutting rate man-made sharpening stone for fine edges. Use to sharpen dull edges quickly. Fine India at is used to provide a fine edge. Use to restore slightly dulled cutting edges and enhance the finish left by medium and coarse crystolonat or and India at stones. Norton India oilstones are manufactured using a proprietary process that impregnates them with a petroleum based product that allows the lubrication used during the sharpening process to stay on the stone's surface. As a result, the metal from the object being sharpened and small pieces of abrasive that break off the stone become suspended in the lubricant. This prevents these materials from imbedding into the sharpening stone's surface, keeping it free cutting and making it easy to keep its surface clean.

I've had a similar Norton stone for over 20 years, and it's still in service today (That one was made in USA. This one in Mexico). I bought this one to bring with me to Iraq, because the cook is always dulling the kitchen knives, and I like 'em sharp when I cook.

As the other reviewer said, if you know how to sharpen a knife properly, this is one of the best stones on the market.

I've tried just about every gimmick "sharpening system" on the market, and I still always go back to my two-sided Norton stone. A good butcher's steel is also a must have item. My dad was a butcher, and he taught me the art of sharpening knives. It takes practice and perseverance, but it really pays off when you get a quality edge on a good knife. Keep it touched up with the steel, and you'll seldom have to take the stone out of the drawer.

I am a retired meat cutter...I used an 11.5 inch "Norton 3 stone stystem" for 45 years. This 8 inch stone, though considerably smaller, does a mighty fine job. I have no problem sharpening my kitchen knives or my buther knives.

This is a great stone if you know how to sharpen knives correctly and never let your knives get really dull or badly nicked. I've had one in my kitchen for 30 years. The coarse side is just right for putting the edge back on. The fine side polishes it really sharp. The stone never seems to load up with filings, which stay suspended in the oil.

Nobody else can touch the reliability of a Norton India stone. I use constantly as a tool and die maker and they always do the job, hold oil well, don't load up bad, and last. Also to clean stone if it does start to load up you can soak in oil or coat a piece of ground flat steel with oil and work the stone on it with little pressure for a bit. Great around the house and shop as well for sharpening knives, scissors, etc.

This is a sharpening stone, not a finishing stone. Specifically, this is an Oil stone. This stone will get your knife very sharp, definitely sharp enough to cut food and certainly sharp to gravely injure human flesh

When using this stone, you put oil on the side you are using and sharpen with the oil. The oil basically lubricates the sharpening process. You can use a couple of types of oil on the stone. Norton makes a specifically sharpening oil, I myself use 3-1 oil. It doesn't take much oil to get the stone going, though if you put to little the blade won't glide smoothly over the stone. Its easy to figure out.

There are I think 4 types of oil stones; Crystolon stones, India stones, Hard Black Arkansas stones and Translucent Arkansas stones. 'Hard black' and 'Translucent' Arkansas stones are FINISHING stones, where as Crystolon and India stones are Sharpening 'Oil' stones. Crystolon stones have the lowest grit-concentration, India is somewhat higher, where as 'Hard black' and Translucent' are considerably higher. Ideally, when sharpening a knife with Oil stones, you are supposed to progress from the Crystolon stone to the India stone and then to either Hard Black or Translucent Arkansas to finish the blade. Translucent has even more grit than Hard Black but is quite expensive, easily over 100 for a stone.

Finishing stones are to be used AFTER honing your blade on a sharpening stone, if you want. They bring the knife's blade to that extra level called 'scary sharp', the kind of sharpness that shaves hair off your arm.

I love this Norton India stone. It nicely prepared my Benchmade N680 for the 'Hard Black' Arkansas stone.

Be careful with the course grit side of this stone. It will eat metal for breakfast. The fine grit did a nice job putting a working edge on the blade. Don't spare the oil.

this is easy to use and does a great job on my kitchen knives. I watched some youtube videos on how to sharpen knives using a stone and then went to work on my kitchen knives. they are now sharp and hold a nice edge. This product works exactly as advertised

It does take practice, but this stone works fine. I use 3 in 1 oil and am able to get a very sharp edge on my Chicago Cutlery chefs knife.
