Gritomatic Sharpening Stones are used for sharpening knives using Edge Pro sharpeners. The stones are made of silicon carbide and are designed for the hardest steels (up to 65 HRC). Narrow stones (12 mm wide) are suitable for recurved blades. All stones are 6 mm thick and are mounted on high-quality aluminum blanks.
It is advisable to use Gritomatic stones for sharpening knives made of hard stainless steel or carbon steel. Using Gritomatic 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 Gritomatic stones of 120 and 220 grit can be used as a universal stone due to their harder bonding.
