Description

Silicon Carbide Sharpening Stones are used for sharpening knives using KME and Hapstone sharpeners. The stones are made of silicon carbide and are designed for the hardest steels (up to 65 HRC). All stones are 6 mm thick.

It is advisable to use silicon carbide stones for sharpening knives made of hard stainless steel or carbon steel, such as: ZDP-189, ZDP-247, S30V, S35VN, S90V, S110V, 154CM, D2, YXR7, Cowry, S290, S390, K294, K390, M390, Elmax, 154CPM, ATS-34, 440C, AUS-8, AUS-10, A2, BG-42. Using silicon carbide stones to sharpen knives made of soft steel is not recommended, as it will cause the stones to wear an at increased rate. However, coarse silicon carbide stones of 120 and 220 grit can be used as a universal stone due to their harder bonding.
