Useful for Carving Tools or Any Curved Edge

The Round Edge Slip Stones are traditionally used for sharpening carving tools but are useful for many other sharpening needs when you need a round edge. Our Arkansas Slip Stones have a 3/8" diameter on one side and an 1/8" on the other. The overall length is 4" with a width of 2".

Available in Hard Select Arkansas. This grade of stone is fine dense stone.

Proudly made in the USA. Made of natural stones quarried in Arkansas.

Q. How do the grits of Arkansas Stones Compare to each other?

A. Arkansas Stones are graded not by grit numbers like other types of stone, but by their density and hardness. The less dense, or softer the stone, the coarser it is. The more dense, or harder the stone, the finer it is. The Hard Arkansas is in the middle of the Arkansas stones overall, and is considered a medium fine grit. The Hard Translucent Arkansas stones are the finest of the Arkansas Stones and are considered fine polishing grit. See our article Arkansas Stone FAQ's for more information.

Q. How do the grits of the Arkansas Stones compare to other types of oil stones?

A. The Arkansas Stones are finer than the Silicon Carbide (Norton Crystolon) or Aluminum Oxide (Norton India) oil stones. See our article Difference in Sharpening Stone Materials for more information.

Q. How fine of an Arkansas Stone do I need?

A. The decision of what stone to finish with is a personal one depending on what kind of edge you desire. A Hard Arkansas will leave a refined edge that is highly polished. A Hard Translucent Arkansas will leave a very refined edge that is approaching mirror fine.

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.
