Bench Stone - 400/800 grit / 3" x 8" x ¼"
Cubic Boron Nitride (CBN) is a high-tech super abrasive that is second in hardness only to diamond. Offering greater abrasion resistance and thermal conductivity than conventional abrasives like silicon carbide and aluminum oxide, CBN removes steel quickly and efficiently. Spyderco’s new 3×8 bench stone combines the many advantages of CBN with a classic flat stone format to supercharge traditional sharpening technique.
The broad, perfectly flat carbon steel embryo of this stone is coated with fast-cutting 400-mesh CBN on one side and finer 800-mesh CBN on the other. Ideal for putting an edge on knives, this stone is also the perfect choice for sharpening wood chisels, plane irons, and similar tools and comes complete with a high quality suede protective case. Includes Suede Leather Pouch. Size: 3″ x 8″ x ⅜”.
THE IMPORTANCE OF BEING SHARP-
No cutting tool can ever realize its full potential without a properly sharpened edge, but for many people, sharpening remains an elusive skill. It doesn’t have to be.
Before Spyderco ever made knives, they created revolutionary tools to keep them sharp. Working closely with America’s leading manufacturer of industrial ceramics, they developed their versatile, easy-to-use Tri-Angle Sharpmaker to demystify the sharpening process and enable anyone to quickly bring their knives to a razor edge. Since then, Spyderco has added a broad range of other sharpeners, all proudly sharing the same key qualities: they are quick and easy to use, don’t require oil, water, or complicated clamps and fixtures, and don’t need electricity. Most also easily sharpen serrated edges while prolonging the working life of your blade. There’s no excuse to settle for anything less than optimal cutting performance. Get the edge you need on all your kitchen knives and other cutting tools with Spyderco sharpeners.
