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 the coarsest of the natural oilstones that we carry, but still finer than the fine man-made oil stones such as the India and Crystolon stones. Because this is a natural stone, the color of the stone varies. The handsome wooden box keeps the stone safe when not in use. The Soft Arkansas stone is available in 3 sizes to fit your needs. The 4" x 2" x 1" is a small economical stone that is best used only on smaller knives and tools. The 6" x 2" x 1" is a medium sized stone that is popular due to the good size and value. If you do a lot of sharpening, you’ll appreciate the large 8" x 2" x 1" stone; its generous size allows for longer strokes to speed up the sharpening process.

Now available in the the wider 8" x 3" x 1/2" size.

Proudly quarried and made in the USA.

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.
