4" x 1 x .40 Jade Whetstone
This sharpening stone can be an all in one whetstone solution! When the surface texture is
prepaired semi coarse to coarse it sharpens at a sub 1000 Grit level, flip your stone over and the finer side can polish up to 30,000 grit or a mirror level of finish. As the stone loads with steel it gets finer and finer, we recommend that you scuff up the surface on occasion with a fine or rough diamond plate (120 or 600 grit) to acheive the dual grit surface effect. The stone can quickly make the transition from the bevel setting grit to fine grit finishing. This sharpening stone is ultra hard, it cannot be gouged into with steel and it never needs to be flattened. If you mess up your sharpening stroke angle you will not gouge into it.
This sharpening stone will last multiple lifetimes under regular use. This whetstone also comes with a lifetime lasting warranty, should you ever break it will will send you a replacement stone in exchange, no questions asked.
An excellent small sized Nephrite Jade bench stone that will last lifetimes.
This stone can fit the KME guided sharpening system and others that take a 4" stone.
This stone is a must have for experts or total beginner sharpeners.
Jade will save you money big time, because it can act like a double sided stone if you keep one side sanded and the other you allow to load up with steel. This gives you a lifetimne lasting multi grit sharpeining stone.
Jade's ability to not dish out and take on different surface grit textures gives you
a fast low grit stone and a fine high grit side all in one if you choose to have it sent dual grit and not polished on all sides.
If you dont want your stone polished on all sides just leave me a note in your order to make it
dual grit for you, otherwise it comes totally polished and flat and later you can choose to sand the polish off and make one face rough for faster sharpening.
Mother nature knocked it out of the park with this incredible geological combination. This stone is incredibly hard, fine and fast cutting. It will never require the surface to be reflattened because it simply doesnt dish out, or gouge.
The surface of this rock burnishes finely when you sharpen on it. You will see it eat a streak of metal each sharpening stroke. Or try a surface texture of 120 or 220 grit, for a fast sub 1000 grit feel. The hardness guarantees this stone to last for many lifetimes. When lightly slurried with a diamond plate, the pores of the stone are opened up again like how it comes to you when you first receive it. With use the stone starts to get loaded up with metal from previous honing sessions, getting finer and finer. I recommend you add a fine or worn out diamond plate to your kit to be able to do a full sharpening session with just this one stone, by slurrying it and reconditioning it.
