Thick! 8″ x 3.5″ Apache Strata Hone (ID# AS0116)


Out of stock


Almost TWO POUNDS OF PURE HONING PLEASURE! She comes in at 3/4 inches thick!

Description: Apache Strata natural honing stone. This is a finishing stone that can be used with water alone–no slurry needed.

Personal notes: I inspected this large natural beauty and even used it to get a nice HHT3 without too much trouble just using water without stropping. It’s fabulous. Don’t worry about the cracks, the rock is tightly held together. You do not feel any of the cracks whatsoever, I promise. If you drop it, that’s a separate issue because it will likely break. Just don’t drop it. You cannot beat the ample glide room! I lapped this to 1000 grit and it really does feel nice. Don’t hesitate. You will love it.

Surface preparation: It has been lapped to a degree that is usable, but you may want to finish it off with a 1200 grit diamond block (or not if you like what I did to it). Inspect it closely to determine if you need to make any modifications such as sanding edges or lapping before you begin to hone.

Grit: 10000 – 12000+

Size: approximately 8″ x average width varies from 3″ to 3.5″ x .75″
