The Nano Hone system was developed by entrepreneur and knife addict, Hap Stanley. He believes that the flatter the stone the more efficient and effective the sharpening. To this end, he has engineered a range of stones, flattening plates, and accessories that can take care of almost every sharpening need with precision and ease.
His stone system is based around a Stone Stage. This holder is a major departure from the usual end gripping systems by using a very heavy base with two staging pins that locate in the back of the stone. The posts easily release the stone for super quick changes.
This is the coarsest stone in the current lineup. It has a grit rating of 35 microns, which translates to about 400 grit. It is made from a non-porous ceramic matrix which has been created to offer a great balance of finish and cutting speed. The stone is a true splash-and-go style that requires very little water to get going. The stone holder is color coded for easy recognition.
We believe that this system is an interesting departure from the norm and one that any serious sharpener would do well to consider.
