5" x 2.5 x 1/2 Jasper Barber Hone
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.
The perfect size hand held size sharpening stone.
Ultra hard, ultra fine and amazing as a polishing stone,
jasper may also be used double sided with two different surface preperations.
To keep one side cutting faster lap it with coarse sand paper, or a diamond plate
as desired. You'll notice the more it loads up with steel,
the more it starts to slow down. All you need to do is
give it a quick lapping for 30 seconds and it will be fast again.
For the finer side you can experiement with letting it load up,
or slurry it / dress it now and then with fine stones or diamond plates.
This natural hone doesn't need to be soaked and can be used
with water, oil or slurried with a diamond plate.
This stone performs exceptionally well as a finishing stone
for straight razors, and I really like them in this classic barber hone size.
This jasper whetstone is 30k grit yet it also cuts steel
very quickly and you will notice it removes steel and refines your
edge every sharpening stroke. When slurried with a diamond plate,
the stone polishes extra fast, but that's not required because
it also is exceptionally quick when freshly dressed.
You will never have to reflatten this stone and it cannot be worn out,
it will last a lifetime under daily use.
