Price: $62.00
Shipping Weight: 2.10 pounds

A combination waterstone is an economical answer to sharpening chisels and blades. With 1000 grit on one side and 4000 grit on the other, this Norton waterstone is a self contained sharpening system. It combines the two most useful grits. If you have a course diamond stone for restoring an edge then this stone may be all you need. The Norton Abrasives line of waterstones have been getting very favorable reviews. The stones are harder than Japanese waterstones so they will wear more slowly, and should require less frequent flattening than their Japanese equivalents.

Large 8" x 3" x 1" size is convenient for wide plane irons. Shipped in a stackable plastic case with rubber feet that serves as a mini sharpening station.

For comparison, a 1000 grit Norton waterstone is equivalent to about 14 micron diamond paste, a 4000 grit is equivalent to about 6 micron and an 8000 grit is equivalent to about 3 micron.
