Nano Hone is a company that was started by entrepreneur and knife addict, Hap Stanley. He researched the effects of sharpening on ceramic whetstones over extended periods of time and concluded that the flatter the stone and supporting mechanisms, the sharper the blade and more efficient the stroke of each sharpening pass is.
The result is the Nano Hone System of stones, holders, and lapping plates. We are now an official distributor and will be bringing the full range of sharpening tools from this very interesting new company.
Designed totally in-house in Massachusetts, all of the metalwork is done by local machinists in-state. The stones and lapping plates are manufactured in Japan and then built in the Nano Hone factory in Pepperell, Mass.
