Recommended Sharpening Stones

This sharpening stone fixer is suitable for all coarse grit stones and medium grit up to about 2000. This fixer can flatten stones that are higher grit than 2000, but it will put deep gouges in the surface which can be hard to get out and may affect sharpening. For finer grit stones we recommend Atoma 400 or any of the other Nano Hone that we carry.
