Rated 5 out of 5 by gold4hawk tri hone sharpener I use to sharpen my hunting knives and it does an unbelievable job on thedges ofthose knives May 11, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 Great system! Great system, easy to use and sharpens knives / axes with ease if you know what you're doing. Got all the knives in the house razor sharp and two weeks after getting this system they're still sharp. Only disadvantage is that the plastic is cheap, I dropped the system on accident and it knocked the "Fine" grit stone off and broke the handle, cheap plastic I guess. April 21, 2013

Details:Could you please tell me what the composition of the various stones are and what grit they are rated?
A:Arkansas stone is a naturally occuring rock that is found only near Hot Springs, Arkansas and is used for honing (polishing) sharp edges made of steel. The grit varies but, basically, hones made of Arkansas stone is/are classified as HARD and SOFT. The coarse stone on the Smith Tri Stone Sharpener is a synthetic substance made of aluminum oxide. Don't know the grit classification of the stone provided but it works well to restore the edge on a dull knife and prepare it for honing.
