Pride Abrasives flattening stones allow you to keep your Pride Abrasives Waterstones flat and true.
Keeping your stones flat ensures that you get fast and accurate results every time you sharpen. The 120-grit side is perfect for maintaining waterstones of any grit. The 320-grit side creates a smooth sharpening surface on 3000-grit and finer waterstones, allowing for faster final honing.
Pride’s Flattening Stone is designed to flatten without being overly aggressive. Best practice is to “lightly” flatten the sharpening stone, using the Flattening Stone before sharpening and between tools. More frequent flattening of the sharpening stone may be required if the stone is into hard service.

Pride Abrasive was founded by Matt and Dorothy Hazlett, who began manufacturing abrasive stones in Bristol, Wisconsin, in 1978. Pride’s focus has been to produce the highest quality products at the quickest possible lead times at extremely competitive pricing with a customized approach to each customer. Pride has combined its nearly 40 years of knowledge with a unique water stone production process, resulting in a one-of-a-kind product for industries such as cutlery and woodworking.
