Topic tags/keywords: question

I have been using the Scary Sharp & Norton Waterstones with pretty good success over the past 4-5 months, but came a cross a thread on another WW site about the Natural Whetstone Company. The prices seem very reasonable.

Anyone have any dealing with this company? I am seriously thinking about trying them out.

V/R….. John

I can’t comment on the Natural Whetstone Company but I use oil stones for most honing. Sandpaper on granite to flatten, grinder to set the bevel, and oil stones with strops to hone. Works quickly, with minimum fuss dealing with keeping the stones flat.

those prices look pretty darn good to me…. If they’re ground flat, they should perform very well…. Arkansas stones are natural stone…. so it is what it is…. Nature made them.

I put money into good India and Arkansas stones years ago and am still using them.

I may pick up one of the super hard black stones to compliment my set.

Don’t hesitate – I have dealt with Dave, and his products, prices and service are second to none. There’s no reason to go elsewhere.

I bought a stone from them earlier this year. I live in Texas and I received it less than 48 hours after I placed my order.
