8” x 3” x 1” Blond Jasper Bench Stone
  • 8” x 3” x 1” Blond Jasper Bench Stone

    Here we have one of the rarest varieties of Colorado Jasper, A lovely blond color which is a variety of this strata we don’t see very often. The sharpening properties of the stone are the same as our Jasper in other colors, but the beauty and translucency is an added bonus!

    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. Also when slurried with a fine diamond plate, the stone can quickly make the transition from the bevel setting grit to fine finishing. You don't have to use slurry because the stone cuts very fast even with just water or sharpening dry.


    The 8x3x1 size is an excellent full sized bench stone that will last lifetimes. The large surface area provides faster sharpening sessions by allowing more blade to touch the stone at once.

    This jasper bench stone is a must have for experts or total beginner sharpeners. This material thousands of my customers find superior to ceramic hones that require you to buy

    3 to 5 extra stones just to cover all the grit ranges between low grit for fast cutting and finer grit for polishing your edges to super sharp finish.


    Owning this stone automtically will save you money big time, because it doesn't wear out, or require you to own multiple other stones for the stages of sharpening.


    This strata of 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 like softer stones.


    The surface of this rock burnishes finely when you sharpen on it. You will see it eat a streak of metal

    each sharpening stroke.


    Jasper is such a tough stone that it can be surfaced prepped to cut like a coarse grinding stone as well as a fine polisher. When the stone eats metal it slows down. You can dress the surface

    quite quickly, to refresh the speed, and this removes such a very small amount of material, so it won't compromise the life of your sharpening stone. You can do this surface dressing as little or as often as you like. Within 30 seconds using coarse or finer sand paper,

    a nother piece of jasper, a diamond plate, or softer slurry stones.


    When lightly slurried with a worn in diamond plate, the pores of the jasper stone

    are opened up again, also you can work up an incredibly fine slurry.

    using this method there is no reason to buy whole sets of sharpening stones,

    this one is fast enough to do chip removal, then bridge the gap to mirror polishing.


    With use the stone starts to get loaded up with metal from previous

    honing sessions, you can play with letting one side burnish and skip

    the surface refreshing. This takes the burnished side of the stone

    to a glossy polish which will get you very sharp edges.

    Burnishing means the stone is getting finer and finer, with use.


    if you like to get a razor sharp edge, the fastest...

    I find the stone benefits a lot from being slurried with a mellow

    diamond plate like a worn in 325 or 600 grit.
