The first dedicated Slipstone Series designed by a Professional Master Woodcarver!
Chris Pye developed this range of dedicated slipstones with Norton Pike over a 3 year period.
The slipstones are square and have different profiles on each of the 4 edges. These range from very flat to semicircular with two incremental curves in between. You will quickly see that the range of stones reduce in thickness from 3/4" (19mm) to 1/2" (12mm) to 1/4" (6mm) down to 1/8" (3mm). This covers all the requirements for sharpening large and narrow gouges.
The 8" x 2" double sided fine coarse bench stone comes with a small tin of Norton stone oil (4.5 fl oz) and are housed in a plastic holder.
The unique feature of these slipstones is that you can fit one of the 4 edges to exactly (or closely) match the sweep of your gouge to create an inside bevel or to remove any burr.
Sadly Norton have taken the decision to discontinue the Chris Pye Signature Series. As a result we only have the 'Bench Stone' in stock.
