The finest grit currently available in the Nano Hone sharpening system is this 2μm stone. This corresponds to about 6000 grit. Unless you are going for a show stopping finish, this is about as high a grit as most kitchen knife sharpeners will ever need to go. It completes the triple stone set up for a perfectly spaced range of grades, capable of sharpening and finishing most types of blades.
The stone is intended for use with the Stone Stage holder which features two pins that locate the stone and plate firmly to the base. This results in an extremely rigid structure which is essential for accurate and controlled sharpening. The stone releases from the base easily and the base plate is color coded for quick changes
The stone is made from a non-porous ceramic matrix which has been created to offer a great balance of finish and cutting speed. As it is a true splash-and-go, it requires just a few drops of water to get going.
