The Norton 24336 Japanese-style 4000/8000-grit combinationwaterstone creates an abrasive slurry for effective sharpening, with 4000 griton one face for maintaining and refining a cutting edge, and 8000 grit on theopposite face for polishing cutting edges; this 1 x 8 x 3 inch (H x W x D)stone, suitable for bench use, cleans up easily with water, and comes encasedin a blue plastic hinged box. (H is height, the vertical distance from lowestto highest point; W is width, the horizontal distance from left to right; D isdepth, the horizontal distance from front to back.) The box protects thewaterstone and provides a reservoir to keep it moist. The removable box lid,with no-slip rubber feet, acts as a sharpening station to hold the waterstonein place during bench use. This synthetic waterstone is created by gradingabrasive material to a consistent particle size and blending it with bondingagents. It is then molded and surface-finished. Waterstones have a finer gritand softer bond than oilstones, and use water as the lubricant to develop aslurry, a thin paste of abrasive grains and water that removes metal with lesspressure than an oilstone requires. Cleanup is easier than with oil aslubricant. The use of waterstones originated in Japan, where such stones occurnaturally. As a result, some synthetic waterstones may be called Japanese-style. However, whether natural or synthetic, and whether labeled Japanese-style, all waterstones have the same basic characteristics. This stoneconforms to the Japanese Industrial Standard (JIS) for waterstones. Sharpeningstones, or whetstones, are abrasive surfaces used to sharpen and hone theedges of steel cutting implements such as chisels, knives, scissors, handscrapers, and plane blades. Sharpening is the process of creating or re-establishing a cutting edge by grinding away portions of the metal to adjustthe angle of the edge and reform the shape. Honing removes smallimperfections. Stones can be flat, for working flat edges, or shaped, foredges that are more complex. Sharpening stones are made of natural orsynthetic materials that range from softer to harder, and are categorized bythe size of their abrasive particles, known as grit. A stone with a coarsergrit is used when more metal needs to be removed (e.g., when sharpening anicked or very dull blade); the stone with the finest grit produces thesharpest edge. Where numbers are assigned to specify grit, they range fromcoarser grit (low) to finer grit (high). Some sharpening stones are designedfor use with a lubricating liquid, some can be used dry, and others can beused either wet or dry. When used with lubricating liquid, a sharpening stonecan be called a waterstone or an oilstone, based on the lubricant required.Norton Abrasives manufactures sanding, grinding, and polishing abrasives, andhas been located in the United States since 1885. Norton, now a brand ofSaint-Gobain, meets ISO 9000 and 14001 certification for quality andenvironmental management standards. From the Manufacturer Waterstones aresynthetic stones designed to be softer than oil stones. These softer gradestones are used with water as the lubricant (versus oil) to develop fast-cutting slurry. Designed in a carefully planned and efficient sharpeningsequence. You get the level of abrasiveness that you need at each stage,without wasting time trying to sharpen your knives on a grit that is too fine,too soon.
