The 8" Norton Waterstone is ideal for just about any knife or tool.

The stones we carry are large enough for just about any tool. At 8" long by 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 more even wear of the stone. The larger size also allows you to sharpen even the largest cutting tools.

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. These waterstones are available in 220, 1000, 4000, and 8000 grit. 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 Waterstones for woodworking tools, kitchen cutlery, and other outdoor knives.

Multifunctional Case Included

  • Durable plastic protects stones against breakage
  • Lid creates mini sharpening station
  • Base acts as reservoir to keep stone from drying out

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.
