  • Popular Norton Tri-Stone System
  • Soft Arkansas upgrade to the Norton IM313
  • Three large 11.5" x 2.5" stones
  • Honing Oil included

Popular among professionals, the Norton IM313CIS Tri-Stone System uses a finer Soft Arkansas stone for even finer sharpening.

Convenient System
The Norton IM313CIS 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 ounces of quality Norton Honing Oil are included.

Soft Arkansas Upgrade
The IM313-CIS contains 3 stones:

  • A fast cutting Coarse Crystolon Stone
  • A Medium India Stone
  • A Soft Arkansas Stone

This package is an upgrade from the Norton IM313 Tri-Stone System. It changes the Medium India for the Medium Crystolon and the Fine India for the Soft Arkansas. These stones are finer than the 2nd and 3rd stones in the IM313 and will result in a more highly honed edge.

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.

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.
