Venev Orion³ Series Resin CBN Series is the first CBN product developed by Venev Industrial Diamonds. Venev Orion³ ('Orion Cubed') is made in Edge Pro form-factor and is used for sharpening knives on Hapstone, TSProf, and all Edge Pro compatible guided sharpening systems. CBN (Cubic Boron Nitride) is the second-hardest material after diamond.
Venev Orion³ consists of a 3mm-thick CBN-bearing plate mounted on an Edge Pro aluminum base. The CBN-bearing plate contains evenly distributed CBN grains with resin bonding.
All Venev stones use FEPA-F grit classification. Orion³ series is available in 7 grits. F80 to F240 utilize wear-resistant legacy binder, F400 to F2000 utilize OSB binder with no abrasive particles in the composition.
Venev CBN stones are recommended to be used with water as a lubricant for the best feedback. The stones don't absorb water. Splash water on the stone's surface and keep it wet.
