What features do King Waterstones have?
King Waterstones are aluminum oxide abrasive in a resin bond. As you use King Waterstones, the particles dull and fracture which means they progressively perform like finer grits. Because of this, you’re able to use King Waterstones as finishing stones later in their life.
Do King Waterstones need to be soaked?
King Waterstones should be soaked for 5 minutes before using. This allows the pores in the waterstone to become fully saturated so any swarf is flushed away and particles are exposed.
After use, store the King Waterstone in water so they’re ready for use at any time. There are 2 exceptions to this rule: natural waterstones and fine waterstones (6000x to 8000x) should not be stored in water. Instead, wet them before use.
How do you use a King Waterstone?
When using a King Waterstone, make sure to keep the surface wet.
When switching to a finer stone, let the slurry build up when you press the tool into the waterstone. This slows the abrasion rate and decreases the abrasion depth. When reaching the end of sharpening, press your tool against the King Waterstone lightly while letting the slurry build.
