Introducing the Pink Double-Time Flattening Stone

We like to innovate here at Sharpening Supplies. In 2017 we introduced our Double-Time Flattening Stone, which has gone on to be our most popular flattening stone. But we feel there are always more options to explore. So we are proud to introduce the Pink Double-Time Flattening Stone.

Same Quality Features as the Original

  • 10" x 4" x 1" Size
  • Guaranteed Flat
  • Hand Lapped
  • Unique Molded Design
  • Made in the USA

Tough Pink Aluminum Oxide

The Pink Double-Time Flattening Stone uses pink aluminum oxide as the abrasive compared to the original Double-Time Flattening Stone which uses green silicon carbide. This choice of abrasive was not made for aesthetic reasons. While it is true that pink aluminum oxide does give the stone a spectacular color, it is also a tougher and longer-wearing abrasive than green silicon carbide. The goal was to create a stone that would wear slowly and so stay flatter longer. In our early testing, the tougher but less sharp pink aluminum oxide cuts slower than the original. But both stones wear very slowly themselves, so whether the pink actually wears more slowly over time remains unclear.

The Pink Double-Time Flattening Stone uses 120 grit abrasive on the coarse side. The fine side uses 280 grit abrasive (the original uses 320 grit) to leave a fine finish on water stones. The slightly coarser grit of the fine side was chosen because aluminum grain tends to leave a smoother finish.

Limited Release Stone

The Pink Double-Time Flattening Stone is a limited-release flattening stone. We liked what we saw in our testing, so we wanted to see if the potential long-wearing benefits would interest other users. Right now it is only planned for a limited release, but we may add it to the permanent line if feedback for the stone meets our own testing.

Made In the USA

We've supported US manufacturing since we started and that continues to be important to us. Like the original, the new Pink Double-Time Flattening stone is made in the USA.

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.
