Waterstones are synthetic stones
designed to be softer than oil stones.
These softer grade stones are used
with water as the lubricant (versus oil)
to develop a fast cutting slurry. The
Norton Waterstone system was
designed in a carefully planned sequence
to create sharpening efficiency.
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.
