The Original Stand for Nano-Hone Stones
This is the original version of the Nano-Hone Stone Stage. It does not have the hole in the bottom designed to fit on the corresponding projection in the Nano-Hone Rectangular Pond. This original model is suitable for use as an independent stone holder, or with older style Nano-Hone Ponds without the projections
The Stone Stage is designed exclusively for use with the Nano-Hone Water 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.
A Stable Working Holder
The 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.
Plenty of Clearance
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.
