Verified Buyer Reviewed by shopper guy from michigan on Wednesday, February 8, 2017What I got was in a leather pouch labled "translucent Arkansas". Both sides were good for me, Its not a big stone. I haven't used it yet but it looks good to go.
Reviewed by Zippy from NoCal on Wednesday, January 22, 2014Mine was a hard stone not translucent. Still a good stone!
Reviewed by Centexan from West of Austin, Texas on Saturday, January 18, 2014My daughter has an Eagle Scout boyfriend who pays to have his knives sharpened. After a couple of years of needling him, I saw this and bought it for Dan. Its a typical whetstone and Ive never been able to distinguish much between stones of the same porosity. Its as good as any and better priced.
Reviewed by Kim from CT on Thursday, January 16, 2014Good price, good for sm pocket knife
Reviewed by Lisa from michigan on Saturday, January 4, 2014I ordered this because I needed a translucent stone. What I received was labeled "soft" on the pouch - not "translucent." Very disappointing since the soft stones are cheaper.
Question & Answer
Questions about this product? Get answers from community and staff experts.
“All of the reviews say that this item is mislabeled and it is not an extra fine stone, but instead it is a soft stone. Has this been fixed yet? If I order it, will I receive an Extra Fine stone? I already purchased the tri-stone Whetstone from STP and I love it. But I need an Extra Fine stone to go one step further in sharpening.”
“Would this work for plastics or woods? I am thinking about the extra smooth finish needed on knitting needles.”
“what is the specific grit of this stone?”
An Extra Fine has a related grit size of 1200+. For more information regarding this companies stones: http://www.danswhetstone.com/stone_grades_101.htm
