From the Manufacturer
Norton 4000 grit Waterstones are unique sharpening stones. Although they are a fine grit, they are designed to cut, not polish. They leave a refined edge that can be brought to a mirror finish quickly on the 8000 grit stone. Use the 4000 grit stone before final polishing, for a more consistent, longer lasting edge. Norton@ Waterstones were rated the Best Waterstones by Fine Woodworking and Popular Woodworking. Created by a Norton@ engineer, who is also a dedicated woodworker and bladesmith, Norton@ Waterstones combine craftsmanship with the latest abrasive technology to produce a truly superior sharpening system.
Product Description
Introducing Nortons premier system for sharpening woodworking tools, knives, cutlery and other blades. Their synthetic waterstones can produce a surface that is almost unbelievably bright and chrome-like while putting a legendary edge on cutting tools. Coarser grit stones are used to remove nicks and for first step sharpening of badly dulled tools. Mid-range grits, 1000 and 4000 take that shaped edge to a very sharp edge. 8000 grit is the finishing stone that brings your final cutting edge up and completely removes scratches from the surface. Care must be used to keep from moving coarser grits onto the surface of finer stones, so each tool must be carefully wiped down before it is moved up a step in the sharpening process. Prior to use, stones should be immersed in water for 10 minutes and kept wet during sharpening. 8000 grit polishing stone needs only a splash of water on the surface to cut properly. Stones quickly expose a fresh cutting surface for use, which over time creates a sort of dish effect. Stones may need flattening occasionally. (Flattening stone sold separately here)
