Dan's Whetstone Company stocks and produces nearly 300 natural Arkansas products The company produces stones as small as 3-3 1/2 x 1/4-inch triangle files to 10 x 3 x 1-inch bench stone, a stone used mainly by wood crafters. Since production of whetstones began in the 1800s, processing methods have improved. However, Dan's Whetstone Company still singularly cuts and hand finishes each stone. Each stone passes through many quality inspections during production to ensure that the customer receives the best possible stone available.
Dan's Whetstone Company takes the time to sort out its stones. "Within the various grades of stone there are nine classification or variations," Danny Kirschman says. "Many things, including certain applications, types of items being honed, desired finish or polish and personal preference may call for a specific variation of stone." Using Dan's Arkansas Whetstones and Honing Oil will give your knife a sharp edge quickly without taking a lot of metal off your blade. In addition, the stone naturally polishes your blade as you sharpen it.
