Waterstones are synthetic stones designed to be softer than an oilstone. These “Japanese-type” stones are used with water as the lubricant (versus oil) to develop a fast cutting surface that produces a fine aggressive edge. The Norton Waterstone system is designed using a carefully planned sequence to create sharpening efficiency that provides superb results with low pressure lapping action. You get the level of abrasiveness you need at each stage without wasting time trying to sharpen your tools on a grit that is too fine too soon.
