We offer these premium Arkansas stones for the finest, most precise edge honing and finishing results.
Extracted from quarries in the Ouachita Mountains of Arkansas
stones are cut by circular diamond saws from Novaculite blocks (a naturally-occurring 99.9% pure silica sedimentary rock) then lapped smooth and flat on silicon carbide grinding machines.
The result is a unique crystal structure that enables it to finely cut, hone and polish steel better than any manmade bonded abrasive stones (including ceramic, aluminum oxide, silicon carbide or diamond)
3" x 1" x 1/4" can be used in conjunction with most base and side edge bevel guides to precisely maintain your desired bevel angles.
Comes in a sturdy leather pouch
TWO GRITS AVAILABLE:
The fine Arkansas Hard stone is great for the edge finishing needs of most skiers and snowboarders...including recreational riders, master and junior racers.
The ultrafine Translucent stone is a favorite of many World Cup techs for creating a near mirror-like finish (it's used in the medical field to sharpen scalpels) if you've set your competitive goals higher than the average bear.
