Exciting New Norton Ceramic Stones
Norton Pike Ascent Ceramic Stones are the latest development from a company with a long history of making quality sharpening stones. We're excited that Norton has chosen to work with Sharpening Supplies to launch these new stones. The quality and convenience of these extremely hard, extremely fine, extremely flat stones will make sharpeners of tools and knives alike excited as well.
Ascent Stones are made of exceptionally pure ceramic material and are truly hard. Ceramic this hard will cut any steel, even the very hard, tough alloys found in the best knives and tools. Ceramic stones wear exceptionally well for a long life even with heavy use.
The Ultra Fine grade of the Ascent Ceramic Stones is for finishing and polishing. The resulting finish is finer than that achieved from a Hard Translucent Arkansas and comparable to the Norton 8000 grit Water Stone. These are great for a final sharpening step and to maintain a razor edge on your tools and knives.
Norton Ascent Ceramic Stones are reliably flat. They are machined to a flat, smooth surface when they are made, and the same hard wearing characteristics that give them a long life also ensures that they will remain flat. These stones will not dish or cup with use.

One of the factors that keeps people from sharpening is the inconvenience of the whole operation. Stones have to be prepared. Messes have to be cleaned up. Ascent Ceramic stones offer the convenience of stones that are ready to go when you are.
