Ceramic Axe Sharpening Stone
The Gransfors Sharpening Stone is comprised of ceramic abrasive with a grain structure developed to best supply the needs of coarse and fine grinding. The coarse, 180-grit side is used for repairing damage from hard wear, whereas the finer, 600-grit side is used for fine grinding. The grain structure of the stone makes it both tough and long-lasting. As opposed to a natural stone, a ceramic sharpening stone can be made to have a more precise grain size. The stone has a round, flattened shape with bevelled edges to give a round transition. The fine side makes up 2/3 of the thickness, as this is the side that usually wears the most. The stone is normally used with water, but can also be used dry. The Sharpening stone features a rubber case. Gransfors Bruk offers three different sharpening products that are all relatively similar to each other: Sharpening Stone, Diamond File, and Natural Whetstone. The main difference between these products is the material, but both the grit size and shape of the products differ as well. Choosing the right product comes down to individual opinion and taste.
