What is a carborundum stone

If you've only been around sharpening for a few years, you've probably never heard of a carborundum stone. It isn't that these stones don't exist, it is because the current popular language doesn't use the term carborundum to refer to the silicon carbide stone any longer. In short, carborundum is a silicon carbide stone.

Our most popular "carborundum stone" is the Norton Crystolon Stone. Crystolon is Norton's term for their silicon carbide stone. We offer many different sizes of the Norton Crystolon stone.

If you've been looking for a carborundum stone and just couldn't fine any. You've come to the right place, just look for any of our stones that are labeled "silicon carbide" or "Norton Crystolon Stones".

Dear Mr. Carmona: From the first time I spoke to you by telephone, I have been greatly impressed by your willingness, even your eagerness to take your time from your own personal activities to assist me. I am awed by your extensive knowledge and work in a field that is such a benefit to so many people in so many kind of activities. Your website is a real asset, and a testimony to your desire to be helpful. I wish to thank you again for your kindness as well as your fervor in the way your company deals with interested parties, even those who may purchase nothing, or only small items, as I have done.
