Schaaf Tools 400/1000 Grit Diamond Sharpening Stoneallows you to transform even the dullest tool into a champion class carving tool. This diamond stone, along with a strop and stropping compound, will put your tools in carving condition quickly and easily. The stone requires no maintenance (soaking, flattening, or oil) and comes with a non-skid universal stone base with three premium rubber stops. The base keeps the tool where you want it.
The 400-grit side is coarse enough to reshape a tool edge quickly, so use this side if you knick 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.
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. The kit even comes with a spray bottle for our favorite shop-made lapping solution: tap water with a little drop of dish soap.
