Great Stone - Power and Hand Tools

Now all my blades shave my hair my hands look like I have an itch lol. The stone came out a bit oily so they actually put it in. The stone is nice and long and gives more accurate hits, two grit levels are perfect for me. I have both my handy pocket knife and my razor chisels. Norton all the way for my stones.

Takes practice but is a great inexpensive way to learn how to sharpen

If you've never sharpened knives before, it takes a little frustrating practice to get a feel for how it works , but it's nice to learn how quickly it works. I bought a double sided stone from Arkansas to pair with this one. Honestly, you could just get this rock because it's so cheap, sharpen a lot of knives (it takes practice), and then decide where to go next. It makes the knife sharp enough for almost anything you need.

  • Perfect for outdoor activities

Master Gun and Blade Smith's favorite stone

This is the best stone for general purpose knife sharpening. As a gunsmith, Norton India stones are used to create precise trigger and trigger faces. This is my favorite and I have used it for many years for shaping and sharpening knives and cutting tools in the engine room. As a master gunsmith published in the National Gazette, I can recommend this stone. Great for sharpening any tool or blade, look no further. You can spend more, but you can't buy better!

Great Oil Stone!: Power & Hand Tools

My first oil stone, it came from the manufacturer flat on both sides and filled with at least a decent amount of oil. It comes in a box with oil stains on the inside, so there are signs of pre-lubrication. Putting oil on an Indian stone takes a very long time to soak in oil, unlike the gray Kristallon I bought later. Crystolon soaks up oil like a dried sponge. That means you have more time to work with Indian stone and a nice oil sheen to blow the lawn. Basically, it's ready to use!

  • Repair

I tried diamond blades to sharpen my Spartan Blades fixed knives which were made from CPM S35VN steel and hardened to 58-60 HRC and the diamonds immediately wore off the blades. This stone is more aggressive than diamond plates and will not wear out. Use with oil ONLY. I recommend mineral oil and clean it regularly with WD40. The course side is for serious repairs only, use the thin side for sharpening. Although it is #320 grit, it will not cut through your knives. I get a very good jaggedโ€ฆ

The non-Norton stone arrived in a Norton box.

If you are familiar with these stones you will be disappointed with what you get. If you're like me you would expect to be able to store the stone in the box shown in the pictures, instead it arrived in a cheap flimsy disposable box. In addition, the edges and surface of the stone are raised and uneven. Using it on any surface will create deep, unwanted gouges that will ruin your finish. (Photos attached) If the quality of the Norton hasn't deteriorated in the last 2 years I'm pretty sure it'sโ€ฆ

An excellent stone when properly prepared and used!

An old, proven classic. A very good stone. Make sure you use it properly for best results and to keep your stone in good condition. This means ignoring the manufacturer's claim that this stone is pre-lubricated with oil. It's a bunch of junk. This stone comes in a box! This means that most of the oil has leaked out or dried up. Before using this stone for the first time, keep applying polishing oil (I recommend Lanksy) until the stone stops absorbing oil! This might take a while. But keepโ€ฆ

An underrated classic. Use WD-40!

All you have to do to use this stone is apply a little oil or WD40 to it, sharpen the tools, dry it with a paper towel and then put it away. No soaking, no flattening, very little mess. You don't have to worry about rust because there is no water in it. I've found regular honing oils to be a bit sticky and messy. I only use WD-40 and it works great. You don't need much - just enough for the metal particles to float in the oil and not stick to the stone. Some people talk about flattening theseโ€ฆ

I recommend it to all home sharpeners.

UPDATE --- I've used it to sharpen a hatchet and some vintage knives now! Did a SUPER JOB! I used kerosene as the grinding oil and the stone soaked it up completely. Metal cutting was fast on the rough side and still pretty fast on the "thin" side. I would actually describe the red "thin" side as EXTRA medium. It wasn't enough to give the materials I sharpened the sharp edge I prefer. Keep the stone very wet. I recommend a small syringe/dropper bottle (I use colored applicators from a makeupโ€ฆ
