The 1x4 KME Jende Silicone Carbide Carborundum Stones offer aggressive sharpening capabilities for serious profiling, repairs, and initial sharpening. The #80 grit stone is an extra-extra coarse stone that quickly removes metal and can leave longer "whisper" scratches above the bevel. Despite its appearance, this stone excels in aggressive sharpening and can effectively replace coarse diamond plates and other extra coarse and coarse sharpening stones.
The #120 grit stone is an aggressive extra coarse stone suitable for profiling, repairs, and initial sharpening. While not as aggressive as the #80 grit stone, it still offers efficient metal removal and prepares the blade for further sharpening stages.
Both stones measure 1x4 inches and are mounted on steel blanks. They are designed for use with water only and perform best when soaked for a minute or two before use. It is recommended to store them in a dry place between uses.
