Occupying the middle of the Nano Hone stone lineup is this 1000 grit sharpening stone
. It is a true splash-and-go stone that gets up to speed with a minimum of water. The stone is made with a non-porous ceramic matrix that has been designed to provide a perfect balance of high level finishing and speed of metal removal. It comes attached to the universal plate mount called the Stone Stage Holder. This two pin system attaches to the Stone Stage and provides an amazingly tight interface between the stone and your work area. The stone easily releases from the holder for fast changes.
The Nano Hone system was developed by Hap Stanley, who believes that the flatter the stone the more efficient and effective the sharpening. Seeking to maximize this ideal situation, Hap has engineered a range of stones, flattening plates, and accessories that can take care of almost every sharpening need with precision and ease.
