Description

Sharpening stones, also known as whetstones are normally used to grind and sharpen the cutting edges of tools and implements. There are sharpening stones of different materials, sizes and shapes. We use aluminum oxide or silicon carbide as the main abrasive material.

These sharpening stones are available in numerous grades. They are usually graded by the grit size of the inherent particles. Stones with a fine grit are denser and they give a smoother finish to the sharpened surface. Conversely, coarser grit gives a rougher finish. The grading is often done by number and a higher number denotes a higher density stone that would give a finer finish.

At Forture Tools, we make sharpening stones from aluminum oxide or silicon carbide. They are used for sharpening scissors, scythes, knives, razors and tools such as chisels, hand scrapers and plane blades. They have a wide range of shapes and various grades.

Sharpening stones usage

These sharpening stones suit for processing hardened steel, alloy steel, precision measuring tools, agate stone and instrument parts with high toughness, or cutting tools to make sharp and repair workpieces.
