The Soft/Hard Black Arkansas Combination Stone is made of a stone called novaculite. This stone, quarried in the Ouachita Mountains of Arkansas and Oklahoma, is almost pure silica which makes a great surface for sharpening knives and tools.

The Soft/Hard Black Arkansas Combination Stone gives you a medium and a extra fine grit. This combination offers you a excellent grit progression. When paired with a coarser India stone, this combo stone will give you everything you need to achieve a super fine edge.

The handsome wooden box keeps the stone safe when not in use. The Soft/Hard Black Arkansas Combination Stone is available in 2 sizes to fit your needs. 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.

Proudly quarried and made in the USA.

Q. I see that the Soft Arkansas side is rated as medium, isn't that rather coarse?

A. We carry many stones that are deemed "medium" but that doesn't necessarily mean that they are all the same. The Soft Arkansas side is considerably more fine then a medium India or Silicon Carbide stone. The Soft Arkansas is in fact finer than a fine India or Silicon Carbide stone.

Q. Is the Hard Black Arkansas on this stone the same grit as the Hard Translucent Stone?

A. Yes, both are graded to the same level of hardness and will give a similarly extra fine edge.

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!
