An Economical Kit for Sharpening

We created this kit to provide a cost effective sharpening stone with a good solid base to work from. The base lifts the stone off your work surface to provide your hands plenty of clearance. The rubber feet keep the stone firmly planted in place. When you are done sharpening, just close the lid and your stone can be put away until your knives need another touch up on the sharpening stone. The stone featured in this kit is Norton's hard-to-find Medium India and Soft Arkansas combination stone. The stone measures 8" x 2" x 3/4". The kit contains a 4.5 oz. container of oil for use with the stone.

The Medium India Side
The Norton India stone is an oilstone made with aluminum oxide abrasive. This side features the Medium India grit. This side is great on dull knives, it is used prior to the Soft Arkansas side.

The Soft Arkansas Side
The Soft Arkansas stone is made of a stone called novaculite. Made of almost pure silica, the stone makes a great surface for sharpening knives and tools. The Soft Arkansas stone is finer than the Medium India side. Because this is a natural stone, the color of the stone varies.

Note: Norton has updated the design of this black plastic case. The new case design can be view here (Norton IM50).

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.
