Available in the following Grits
220 Extra Coarse Grit - This grit is excellent for establishing a new bevel angle on a tool or knife. We also recommend it for extremely dull or nicked blades. This sharpens very quickly.
400 Coarse Grit - This is a coarse stone that is about as coarse as you’ll need if you never have an edge that is too dull or damaged. This stone is not necessary if you have the 220 grit.
1000 Medium Grit - This stone is very popular grit because it is really starts to refine the edge. This stone refines the edge after using the 220 or the 400. If your edge isn’t very worn, you don’t need to start any more coarse than this.
2000 Fine Grit - This is fine enough for many applications. In the kitchen, this stone will leave your knife with an edge better than most factory edges. At this level, this stone is considerably finer than any stones marked "fine" available in stores.
3000 Extra Fine Grit - This is an good final stone. Many people will use this after the 1000 grit stone. This stone is fine enough to be used prior to the 8000 grit stone.
5000 Very Fine Grit - This is a good final grit for many tools and knives. This stone works wonderfully well after you've used the 1000 grit. This stone is also fine enough to be a good stone prior to the 10,000 or 12,000 grit.
8000 Extremely Fine Grit - This stone is extremely fine. This is a wonderful final stage for most knives or tool edges. We recommend using this after the 2000 or finer grits.
10,000 Extremely Fine Grit - This stone is extremely fine. It is slightly more fine than the 8000. This is a wonderful final stage for most knives or tool edges. We recommend using this after the 3000 or finer grits.
12,000 Mirror Polish Grit - If you want a truly superb edge, this grit is so fine that your edge will shine like a mirror. After using this stone, the edge will not appear to have any grit marks at all.
