Product Description

These are the finest of the natural stones, known the world over for their unique crystalline structure. True novaculite, these stones remove less metal than manmade stones and polish while sharpening. The resulting edge is longer lasting and sharper, achieved with fewer stones and less effort. Arkansas stones must be used with a lubricant.It keeps the stone's surface from clogging, reduces the effort required to sharpen and keeps it clean. Oil or water may be used, but if you decide to go with oil as a lubricant, you must continue to use oil since water will no longer be absorbed by an oil soaked stone. Hard Black stones are the hardest and finest stones. Used for a honed, highly polished edge. Stone colors may vary.

Any dissatisfaction on my part pertains to the milling and quality control of the manufacturing process and not the material. Out of the box the surfaces appeared to be a bit rough for a polishing stone. Likewise, the stone was not flat. It was crowned down the middle (lengthwise) and across its width which created a shallow pyramid effect. I tried flattening the stone with 80 grit sandpaper on a granite reference surface. This is a slow and laborious process. It is also a testament to the quality of the novaculite that was mined to make the whetstone. After several hours of work the corners are still lower than the rest of the stone but there is lots of flat surface for sharpening plane blades, chisels and the like. The 80 grit abrasive paper also smoothed down the roughness of the surfaces to such a degree that this is now a fine polishing stone. At the current price this is not an inexpensive addition to your sharpening regimen. However, it is priced far below what I consider to be premium stones e.g. Dan's Whetstones and Best Sharpening Stones.
