The Hard Arkansas stone is made of a stone called novaculite. This stone, quarried in the Ouachita Mountains of Arkansas and Oklahoma, is almost pure silica which makes a great surface for sharpening knives and tools. The Hard Arkansas stone is finer than the Soft Arkansas stone so it leaves a finer edge. Because this is a natural stone, the color of the stone varies, but it is usually white. The handsome wooden box keeps the stone safe when not in use. The Hard Arkansas stone is available in many sizes to fit your needs. The 4" x 2" x 1" is a small economical stone that is best used only on smaller knives and tools. The 6" x 2" x 1" is a medium sized stone that is popular due to the good size and value. If you do a lot of sharpening, you’ll appreciate the large 8" x 2" x 1" stone; its generous size allows for longer strokes to speed up the sharpening process. We now carry larger 10" x 2" x 1" and the 12" x 2" x 1" stones.

Proudly quarried and made in the USA.

I recently placed my first order after finding you on the web while looking for grinding wheels. I am a customer for life. Here's why. My first order was a simple white grinding wheel for a "normal joe's shop". When I received the wrong wheel (150 grit instead of the ordered 100 grit) I called and without hesitation or the 3rd degree another wheel was sent off. No questioning of my integrity, intelligence or honor. Simply "I am sorry, we'll send the correct wheel off immediately..." The right thing was done by a neat guy. I was treated like an adult. Unbelievable in this day and age...proper...and priceless. Price, performance, responsiveness and customer service par excel-lance. 6-Stars! All my sharpening orders, albeit small shop orders, will now be with you. Promote you I will.
