Convenient System
The Norton IM313 features three very large 11-1/2" x 2-1/2" oil stones in a convenient, easy-to-use system. These stones are long enough to handle any knife or tool thrown at them. The sharpening system holds the stones in a heavy-duty plastic base unit that mounts into an oil bath. The oil reservoir keeps the stones that are not being used submerged in the oil so they're ready to use.The system comes with everything you need to get sharpening, 16 oz of quality Norton Honing Oil are included.

Complete 3 Stone System
The IM313-CIS contains 3 stones:

  • A fast cutting Coarse Crystolon Stone
  • A Medium Crystolon Stone
  • A Fine India Stone

This is a solid three stone set up that will take you from aggressive reshaping of a blade to honing a final cutting edge. For those who are looking for a version with finer stones, it is available in the Norton IM313-CIS.

If you are confused about the different types of stones in the system, have a look at our article Difference in Sharpening Stone Materials for an explanation.

Thanks John, I am so glad to be working with people who know their products and how to use them. You have a very informative and well laid out website and I learned a lot. It was a rainy Sunday and I watched every video and read through each article. The information you provided was very helpful in teaching technique and helping me decide what to buy. Also your products are so well thought out, that no matter what stone you prefer (oil, water or diamond), there is a nice package available for a beginner. All of the products you put together each had their own advantages and believe me, each one spent some time in the shopping cart until I made my final decision.
