This unique 6″ x 2″ sharpening stone uses water (or nothing) as a lubricant, making it clean and convenient as well as highly effective. No messy oils, or pans of water like other stones. The fine diamond surface allows you to hone your knife to an exceptionally sharp and fine edge. It’s just right for oboe and bassoon knives.
It comes in a beautiful, well-made wooden storage and travel case with a removable cover. The base of the case is fitted with rubber feet. This provides stability and helps to avoid marring furniture or other fine surfaces.
We’ve been using these stones here at our reed making desk for over 20 years, with great success. And of course, the lifetime guarantee from the manufacturer is truly unbeatable.
- Use the ‘red’ stone for general everyday sharpening.
- Use the ‘green’ stone for fine tuning the knife edge.
