Benchstones are the standard sharpening product for knife and tool sharpening. They are versatile and can be used to sharpen almost any item. Our wide selection includes Diamond Bench Stones, Water Stones, Oil Stones, Benchstone Sharpening Systems, Ceramic Water Stones and Arkansas Bench Stones.
Sharpening stones come in a wide range of shapes and sizes but typically benchstones are flat retangular stones measuring 6 to 8 inches in length and between 2 to 3 inches wide. They are used to sharpen and hone knives, scissors, scythes, razors and tools such as chisels and plane blades. The process of using a sharpening stone is called "stoning".
Stones are usually available in various grades, which refers to the grit size of the particles in the stone. Generally, the finer the grit, the denser the material, which leads to a finer finish of the surface of the tool. Finer grits cut slower because they remove less material. Grits are often given as a number, which indicates the density of the particles with a higher number denoting higher density and therefore smaller particles.
Your company has a very fine selection of quality items. Many of the more popular brands are nearly impossible to get from other vendors without considerable wait times. But here it is...in record time. Good to know you had it in stock and it's on the way.
