Product Description

From the Manufacturer

A low cost, easy-to-use flattening method for all grit sizes of Waterstones. The coarse grit silicon carbide promotes maximum cutting while the diagonal grooves provide a channel for debris to be removed during the flattening process. Engineered for superb flatness with a very hard bond, it producess an extremely flat result on all sizes of Waterstones.

Product Description

The Norton flattening stone for waterstones is precisely level, with a hard bond, to maintain the flat surface of waterstones; coarse-grit silicon carbide gives it maximum cutting power, and diagonal grooves on one face provide channels for material removal. This flattening stone measures 3/4 x 9 x 3 inches (H x W x D), which makes it suitable for flattening any waterstone with lesser dimensions. (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.) The plastic case protects and stores the stone.

Flattening stones are abrasive rectangular blocks used to smooth the sharpening surfaces and flatten the depressions that repeated use wears in water-lubricated sharpening stones (waterstones), to prepare them for effective sharpening of knives or tools. Waterstones have a finer grit and softer bond than oilstones, and use water as the lubricant to develop a slurry, a thin paste of abrasive grains and water that removes metal with less pressure than oilstone requires. Because of these characteristics, waterstones wear concave with use, and should be flattened periodically for best performance.

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.

This is NOT a reference plane in any sense of the word.

I tried both ways and also used the flattening stone wet and dry as well.

Appears to work well and looks like it will last a long time.

I cannot believe that Norton sells this product.

It is a nothing more than a 220 grit waterstone with slurry channels that goes out of flatness so fast that it is completely worthless.

This is NOT a reference plane in any sense of the word. If you want a true reference plane to flatten your waterstones get a truly flat piece of mirror glass and use 180 or 220 grit silicon carbide wet/dry sandpaper.

Based on all the other reviews, I assumed too that this product could be questionable. However, what they didn't bother to mention is the fact they cannot read instructions. The product packaging tells you how to maintain your flattening stone so that it stays true.

By following the product maintenance instructions, I've found this flattens a water stone very quickly and efficiently without removing excessive amounts of the stone's surface which sandpaper tends to promote. While it may not be the best priced product, it does its job very quickly when you need it, more so than sandpaper and glass. I've found my two sided waterstones last longer when using a maintained flattening stone.

I ignored the other reviews and I'm glad I did.

Works great for coarse stones (best thing I've found to flatten my 220 grit effectively).

Also, it is worth re-flattening and maintaining for future use (follow the instructions).

HOWEVER, for any stone finer than 1000 grit, I would recommend using Silicon Carbide wet/dry sandpaper and a flat surface. (Anything between 60-220 grit)

It's a big rock for making smaller rocks flat. It excels in it's flattening ability. Things that weren't flat now are. I use mine to maintain my Norton 4k/8k.

I wrote a positive review of this product a couple days ago, but have since then come to change my mind. When I first reviewed this product this "flattening" stone looked like it had done the job well when I checked the surface of my water stones with a square. However, I finally checked my "flattened" water stones against a plate metal which I know is perfectly flat and my stones where not, in fact, flat at all, but they "rocked" because the center of the stones were slightly thicker than the edges of the stone. I was able to use a truly flat DMT product to flatten out my water stones.

Save yourself the trouble and do NOT purchase this so-called "flattening" stone. You will have to flatten it before you can use it, so you may as well use whatever you will flatten this piece of junk with to flatten your water stones.

I will hold onto this stone and use it to sand rust off tools. It isn't of much use other than that.

For those who want to like this stone regardless of the reviews, yes, I did follow the instructions that came with the product and I used it on Norton water stones. To my surprise, this product doesn't truly flatter at all.

Works well, and not too bad a price since it lasts so long. Used it on a couple of Norton water stones and it really keeps them flat.

I bought this stone mainly because I was ignorant, and I did not want to bother with attaching sandpaper to glass or another truly flat surface. I used it the first couple of times and it was fine. After only a couple of uses, it has gone out of flat. On top of that, it's far too small to flatten the norton stones which are 3" wide.

I would not recommend this to anyone, just buy some wet/dry sandpaper and attach it to a known flat surface and flatten your stone that way

Having destroyed my other lap stone, I needed to get a new one and this one works fine. It flattened out my hones and restored some of the "bite" to them so I could hone my straight razors.
