This silicon carbide "scythe" stone quickly produces a fast-cutting edge on tools including sickles, scythes, brush hooks, & many other garden tools. This stone is most frequently chosen where the speed of sharpening is the primary consideration. A great & efficient multi-purpose sharpening stone for garden tools & blades.
To obtain best results, lubricate your stone with genuine Norton Sharpening Stone Oil. Oil acts as an effective lubricant during sharpening to float away metal & abrasive particles that would otherwise clog up the stone. When metal particles clog the stone pores, it's called glazing & can ruin the stone.
