Sigma's Select II range is a different beast to anything we have previously used. These ceramic stones feel quite "loose", with slurry-rich actions full of cutting particles. They have been formulated with high alloy steels in mind, making them a great pairing with Western tool steel blades.
The #3000 Sigma is the most generously slurrying stone we have used in this grit range, and it also is comparably soft for a stone that could be used as the final stone on chisels.
This is a benefit in aiding quick cutting action, especially in alloyed steels. We encourage regular flattening with one of our Atoma diamond plates.
210 x 75 x 30mm
For best results we recommend soaking this stone in water for about 10 minutes before use.
