A beautiful ice blue scythe stone made for us in the USA to our specifications. 400 grit aluminum oxide with a medium-hard bond, this stone produces a finer edge than one might expect for its grit rating. Cuts fast, holds water well, resists glazing, is hard enough to bear down to realign rolled edges, and produces a very keen edge that easily dry shaves while retaining the “sticky” bite of a medium or coarse stone. Finer than any of our other scythe stones, yet no slower to hone with. We’re very impressed, and it’s exceeded our expectations for performance.
