Pro Grade Teardrop Sharpening Stone
- Fine Grit – 320
- 5″ x 1.75″ x 5/16″
- Aluminum Oxide
The teardrop shape of a slip hone is for the feel of the sharpener and does not enhance the performance of the hone.
Aluminum oxide stones will initially hone as well as silicon carbide, but will slowly dull the sharpness of the grain.
These stones will hold their shape much longer but need to be refreshed (dressed) from time to time.
This hone is the same size as the Howie’s tear-drop skate stone.
Hone your skates with a course or medium stone prior to sharpening. Starting out with a clean edge makes a big difference.
After sharpening finish the blade off with a medium or fine stone.
The small details will separate you from your competitors.
