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.
