Splash and Go Sharpening
The new water stones from Nano-Hone offer true splash and go sharpening. Made with non-porous ceramics, they do not require soaking before use.
Precisely Sized Grit
The ceramic abrasive of the Nano-Hone Water Stones is precisely sized.
There are three grits in the line:
- 35 micron - 400 grit
- 15 micron - 1000 grit
- 2 micron - 6000 grit
Color Coded Base Plates
Each Nano-Hone Water Stone is mounted to a sturdy Aluminum Base Plate that does more than simply provide stability. The Base Plates are clearly labeled and color-coded, making it easy to identify your stones.
The colors are:
- Blue - 35 micron/400 grit
- Gold - 15 micron/1000 grit
- Gray-Green - 2 micron/6000 grit
Precise Fit with Stone Stage
The Nano-Hone Water Stones are designed to work with the Nano-Hone Stone Stage. Each stone's Aluminum Base Plate has two holes which fit on to pins on the massive Stone Stage stone holder for a stable sharpening experience.
Tidy Sharpening with Sharpening Pond
To get even more from the Nano-Hone sharpening experience, put your Nano-Hone Stone Stage in the Nano-Hone Sharpening Pond to keep the water contained.
The Nano-Hone Water Stones measure 210 mm x 75 mm (8" x 2 7/8") providing ample room for sharpening. The abrasive layer is 10mm (7/16") thick for a long service life. The Aluminum Base Plate is 5mm (3/16") thick making for a sturdy stone.
