A Fundamental Nano-Hone Set
Every Sharpener's tool kit needs a foundation. A core group of stones which is capable of doing most jobs and which can be easily built around. This is just such a foundational kit. Three Nano-Hone stones ranging from coarse to fine grits, and a solid holder to secure them while you work.
The Kit comes with three Sharpening Stones:
- Blue - 35 micron/400 grit
- Gold - 15 micron/1000 grit
- Olive - 2 micron/6000 grit
Each Nano-Hone Sharpening Stone is designed to remove the scratches from the previous stone efficiently and completely. For example, the 6 micron (3K) will competently remove the scratches from the 15 micron (1K) stone. The matrix from the beginning to the end of its life, is highly uniform. This insures that the user will get the expected results every time they sharpen.
Nano-Hone Ceramic sharpening stones are state of the art. Hap Stanley worked with a team of American and Japanese scientists and engineers for 3 years to develop these abrasives. The matrices are based on silicone wafer designs. Practically speaking, no industry knows more about super small structures than the semiconductor makers. So Hap put together a team of these folks to help him build the perfect water stone.
The Nano-Hone Stone Stage is a massive holder. It weighs almost 4 pounds! This weight, combined with the two non-slip rubber feet that run the length bottom of the holder make for an exceptionally stable working stone holder. There is no sliding around with the stone Stage.
The Stone Stage is designed exclusively for use with Nano-Hone Stones. Pins projecting from the top of the Stone Stage fits neatly into corresponding holes in the Aluminum Base Plates of the Nano-Hone stones. This integrated design makes for a stable, secure fit between stone and holder every time.
The Stone Stage raises the sharpening surface of the stone over 2" above the work surface. This generous height provides plenty of knuckle clearance to make for an easy and enjoyable sharpening experience.
