The Norton 4000/8000 is one of the most popular sharpening stones for straight razors. This one hone is really all you need to keep your straight razors sharp. Waterstones are synthetic stones designed to be softer than oil stones. These softer grade stones are used with water as the lubricant (versus oil) to develop fast-cutting slurry.
Stones may need flattening with some frequency. Combination Stones provide double the double grit and reduce the cost of getting started with waterstones, while providing a full selection of grits. This stone is packaged in a plastic case which can be used to hold the stone when sharpening.
4000 Grit: A fine grit that cuts fast but does not polish.
8000 Grit: Provides a polished, smooth edge.
Size: 8" x 3" x 1"
