  • Large 8" x 3" x 1" Size for Easy Sharpening

The Norton Combination Waterstones offers 2 grit sizes per stone for a more economical choice in waterstones.

With the purchase of just two stones you can have a 220 grit stone all the way up to the extremely fine 8000 grit stone. The stones are large enough for just about any tool. At 8" long and 3" wide, these stones are twice the surface area of smaller 6" x 2" stones. The larger surface area provides many advantages over smaller stones. The longer stone allows the use of longer honing strokes for faster overall sharpening. The width allows you to move your tool over different areas of the stone for a more even wear of the stone. The larger size also allows you to sharpen even the largest cutting tools.

Uses

The 8" Norton Waterstone is ideal for just about any knife or tool. In recent years, these stones have become very popular among woodworkers. The fast cutting ability is favored by woodworkers where speed and and a razor-sharp edge is required. The coarse 220 grit stone is used for nicked edges or on extremely dull tools. The 1000 grit is used for fast sharpening after the 220 grit. The 4000 grit leaves a very sharp edge. The 8000 leaves a mirror finish favored by many woodworkers and knife owners.

We recommend the 8" Norton Combination Waterstones for woodworking tools, kitchen cutlery, and other outdoor knives.

When sharpening a straight razor, we recommend the Norton 4000/8000 Combination. These extremely fine grits will leave your razor ready for the strop.

A great money saving option is our Water Stone Kit. You get all 4 grits, plus a flattening stone to keep your sharpening stones in top shape.


Multifunctional Case Included

  • Durable plastic protects stones against breakage
  • Base acts as reservoir to keep stone from drying out
  • No-slip rubber feet keep stone in place during sharpening

Q. How thick are the Norton Combination Waterstones?

A. They are 1" thick. Each side is 1/2" thick.

Q. Do I need a flattening stone?

A. Yes, over time all waterstones will wear unevenly and require flattening. The coarser stones tend the wear more quickly than the finer 4000/8000. Norton makes a flattening stone for these stones.

Q. Which grit do you recommend for sharpening straight razors?

A. The most common is the Norton 4000/8000 combination. These very fine grits remove metal very slowly and are ideal for the delicate edge of a straight razor.

I had a wonderful experience with your salesperson. He treated me with courtesy, showed care about my needs, and taught in a polite manner. His patience is commendable and his knowledge is a real asset. Thank you much!
