Waterstones are a man-made sharpening stone designed to be softer than an oilstone. The softer grade of stone allows it to be 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.
