Norton India Single Grit Bench Oilstones are manufactured with aluminum oxide abrasive and are preferred for imparting durable, smooth-cutting edges and for close tolerances. Orange/brown in color. Available in coarse, medium, and fine grits.
Norton India man-made/synthetic stones are manufactured with abrasives graded to a consistent particle size, blended with selected bonding agents, molded to shape, and finished to exacting surface configurations.
Norton offers a line of both synthetic (Crystolon and India) and Natural (Hard and Soft Arkansas) abrasive benchstones. Choose one stone or a sequence of stones to quickly restore the cutting edge on all straight-edge tools.
All oil stones are porous in nature. Oil is required to keep the pores open and working efficiently.
Typical applications include restoring the cutting edge on straight-edged tools such as chisels, plane blades, wood lathe cutters, draw knives, spoke shaves, knives, and precision tools and delicate instruments.
