From the Manufacturer
Norton@ 8000 grit Waterstones have been designed to give a non-slippery, controlled feel to this important step. When used in conjunction with the 4000 grit stones, they create a polished, long lasting edge in a very short time. Mirror finishes that were hard to achieve with other stones are at your fingertips. 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 Norton's premier system for sharpening woodworking tools, knives, cutlery and other blades. Their synthetic water stones 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 here separately)
