Pride Abrasive Waterstones produce a superior edge finish with man-made Waterstones.
Their water sharpening stones are softer than oil stones and use water to create a slurry, which gives you the level of abrasiveness you need at each stage of sharpening. Waterstones wear concave with use and will need to be re-flattened periodically. 25mm thick x 76mm wide.
The Pride Abrasive 10,000 Water Stone creates a scary sharp edge. It puts an incredible polish on knives and tools and is the grit even the most discerning woodworkers and straight razor users are satisfied with.
Even at this very fine grit level it removes steel at a very fast rate. It is definitely the hardest of the Pride water stones and rarely needs to be flattened.
The 10,000 grit provides the high mirror polish you expect from a 10,000 grit stone. It is fast enough that you can jump directly directly from the 3000 grit. If you are progressing from a 6-8k stone you will only need to take a minimal number of passes to remove the scratches.
- Softer than traditional oilstones - providing lapping action for superb results with low pressure
- Better choice for producing superior edges for planes and straight chisels
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. Utilizing their unique production process and top-grade materials, Pride has created water stones that are long-lasting, fast cutting, leave a mirror finish and – “gasp” – are flat within .007 of an inch right out of the box. Stones should be soaked prior to use approximately 15 to 20 minutes or till they quit breathing or stop bubbling.
