Nagura Stone 8000 Grit
£5.95- In Stock
Nagura stones are a useful accessory to 6000 grit (and above) finishing stones. They can also be used as small sharpening stone themselves.
The Nagura stone serves 2 purposes when used in conjunction with a waterstone :
1. To Develop A Slurry
Creating a slurry on your finishing stones before actually sharpening your tools on them is a good practice as it will greatly speed up the sharpening process.
- To create the slurry first soak both the sharpening stone and the Nagura stone until saturated - usually around 5-10 minutes.
- Rub the Nagura stone over your finishing stone until a good slurry has developed on the surface of the finishing stone.
- The slurry can also be used to clean the stains from the surface of a blade caused by the tannins in wood.
2. Flattening High Spots On Finishing Stones
When using the finishing stone you notice a high spot developing, you can actually rub it out with the Nagura stone.
The Nagura stone can also be used as a small sharpening stone in its own right.
This artificial Nagura stone is equivalent to an 8000 grit gold stone.
Stone Size : Approx. 70 x 25 x 20mm
