Product Description

Product Description

The Norton 4000-grit waterstone creates an abrasive slurry for effective sharpening, with 4000 grit for maintaining and refining steel cutting edges; this 1 x 8 x 3 inch (H x W x D) stone, suitable for bench use, cleans up easily with water, and comes encased in a blue plastic hinged box. (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 box protects the waterstone and provides a reservoir to keep it moist. The removable box lid, with no-slip rubber feet, acts as a sharpening station to hold the waterstone in place during bench use.

This synthetic waterstone is created by grading abrasive material to a consistent particle size and blending it with bonding agents. It is then molded and surface-finished. 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 an oilstone requires. Cleanup is easier than with oil as lubricant. This stone conforms to the Japanese Industrial Standard (JIS) for waterstones.

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.

Created by a Norton@ engineeer, who is also a dedicated woodworker and bladesmith, Norton@ Waterstones combine craftsmanship with the latest abrasive technology to produce a truly superior sharpening system.

I got this stone with the intent of using it in a progression of stones for sharpening my straight razor. When I got it I was very surprised that that the stone was not even close to being flat. It was not a huge deal and it only took me a few minutes to lap it to a flat surface myself but if you ask me if you spend this kind of money on a stone it should come to your perfect.

It hasn't work as good for me. It wears so fast.
I have the 1000 and 8000 and for years now, and I bought this stone in 2014. It has worn so fast that it looks older than my other 2.
I don't think it will last by the end of 2014.

I do woodworking as hobby and use it for a straight razor.

I don't know if I have a defective one, or this is the nature of this stone. I won't buy it again.

My primary purpose for getting this waterstone is to keep my woodworking chisels and planes sharp, but I am also able to use this to sharpen my kitchen knives, various pocket knives we have around the house and my straight razor that I shave with.

A quick internet search will yield you tons of how to articles and videos on how to use waterstones to keep your knives sharp.

This was my first waterstone and I have been pleased with the results so far. The box is great for storing the stone and the rubber feet on the bottom help keep the stone from moving around during use. As part of my set of various grit stones, this makes a great addition!

I have three of the Norton Waterstones for my knives, and they all work great.
These stones provide plenty of surface area to work with, and the case (blue hinged plastic box) works as a perfect base for setting the stone on. The case has rubber feet on the corners to keep everything from sliding all over while sharpening.
I have sharpened many knives and the Norton waterstones show little wear and do a great job at getting an edge. Since I have three of these stones, two are combination stones....with two grit's on opposing sides...it makes it easy to flatten the stones by rubbing the highest grit stone against the lowest grit stone under running water.
