Combination Coarse/Fine Oil Stone
The first step in sharpening is to create the proper bevel angle on your edge. This is best done with a coarse stone. A coarse stone sharpens more quickly than a finer stone. Using a proper coarse stone means that you will not have to spend extra time on your finer stones. Our Combination Oil Stone is made in the USA, using aluminum oxide abrasives. After you've completed sharpening on the coarse side, you can progress to the fine side. The fine side of this stone will greatly enhance the edge created by the coarse side. If your knife already has a well shaped bevel, you can skip the coarse stone and start with the fine.
