* Best Sharpening System *
Schaaf Tools 400/1000 Grit Monocrystalline Diamond Sharpening Stone allows you to transform even the dullest chisels and gouges into a champion class wood carving tool. This diamond stone, along with a strop and stropping compound, will put your tools in carving condition quickly and easily.
The 400-grit side is coarse enough to reshape a tool edge quickly, so use this side if you nick an edge or round the bevel. Switch to the 1000-grit side to refine the bevel and remove the scratches from the coarse side. If your tool is only slightly dull, start with the 1000-grit size. Polish the edge with a strop, and you’re ready to carve. Each side is clearly labeled, so you can work quickly without worrying about using the wrong grit.
The 8” by 2.75” surface of the stone, which is larger than other comparably priced stones, provides all the space you need to sharpen carving tools as well as bench chisels, plane irons, kitchen knives, and even scissors. With proper care, this stone will last for years.

Non-Skid Universal Base and Spray Bottle Included
This sharpening system comes with a non-skid universal base with three premium rubber stops to protect your stone and work surface. The base keeps the tool where you want it, while elevating the stone, making it easier to flatten chisel and plain iron backs. The holder is adjustable and compatible with many other sharpening stones as well.
This kit also comes with a spray bottle for our favorite shop-made lapping solution: tap water with a little drop of dish soap.

Why Use a Diamond Stone for Sharpening?
Using this monocrystalline diamond sharpening stone comes with advantages over other types of sharpening stones! Diamond stones require no maintenance (soaking, flattening, or oil), and they sharpen faster.
Our monocrystalline diamond sharpening stone is electroplated, which means a single metal plate is dipped into a mixture of heated nickel and diamonds. An electrical current is then sent through the plate, causing the solution to bond with it, which results in the diamonds being embedded in the plate. This method lasts much longer than those that use adhesives.
The single plate of steel ensures the stone is flat and will remain flat over time. We use monocrystalline diamonds because they are recognized for their sharpening speed and ease of maintenance.
Meanwhile, clearance channels on both sides of the diamond plate make for easier cleaning.
