Dan's Whetstones - a bit of basic info....


Soft Arkansas (Medium) is the most popular of the grades of Novaculite. It is an all-purpose stone used by woodworkers, sportsmen, butchers, commercial knife sharpeners, cooks and chefs. This stone is used by people who desire keen, sharp edge on their knives and tools in a minimum amount of time. Soft Arkansas stones may be white, grey and black,or pink and grey in colour.

Hard Select Arkansas (Fine) is most suitable for fine polishing and the maintenance of a fine edge on knives or tools. Hard Select Arkansas is often referred to as "White Hard." However, users should be aware that Hard Select Arkansas often has colour variations also. This this colour does not interfere with the honing process by any means. Hard Select Arkansas stones are popular among woodworkers and a variety of industries including the dental industry.

Translucent Arkansas (Extra Fine) stones are classifications included in the True Hard Arkansas grade category according to specific gravity under density standards. The reason there is a classification in this grade is because of colour preferences by customers. Translucent stones may be a uniform, translucent shade of grey, white, yellow, brown and sometimes even pink.

Black Arkansas (Ultra Fine) Black Arkansas stones are black or blue-black in colour. This crypto-crystaline novaculite structure is the most dense and therefore has the properties to achieve the finest polished edge possible.
