The Gransfors Bruks Ceramic Axe Grinding Stone is the perfect tool for repairing everyday wear and tear to the cutting edge of your axe or knife. It comprises of a hockey puck-shaped stone with two separate sharpening surfaces; a coarse side for repairing heavy wear, and a fine side for regular sharpening. This product carries an exclusive Ray Mears Bushcraft logo on the casing.
With its dual-grain sharpening surfaces, this is the only Axe Stone you will need when in the field. It makes the perfect partner to the Gransfors Bruks Axe File
, which should be used first when heavier damage has been inflicted to the cutting edge.
The ceramic composite of this stone provides strength and durability, while the bevelled edge helps to prevent chipping. Two thirds of the stone's thickness comprises of the finer, 600 grit side, as this is usually the surface that is used and thus worn down most. The stone comes in a protective rubber case, which also helps to keep the stone in place while in use.
This particular stone is a manmade alternative to the Gransfors Bruks Original Axe Stone which, due to a lack of natural materials, is no longer available. By way of extensive testing, this ceramic version has proven to be just as effective as - if not superior to - its predecessor.
The Gransfors Bruks Ceramic Axe Grinding Stone can be used dry, but it is recommended that you use it with a small amount of water. After sharpening your axe, Woodlore recommend the use of Ice Bear Camellia Oil
to protect the blade from rust and corrosion.
