The combination of the man-made India stone and the natural Arkansas Stone makes this a versatile stone. If you do a lot of sharpening, you’ll appreciate the large 8" x 2" x 3/4" stone; its generous size allows for longer strokes to speed up the sharpening process.

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 stone is made of a stone called novaculite. This stone is quarried from the Ouachita Mountains in Arkansas and Oklahoma. 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.

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.
