Arkansas sharpening stones are from Quachita Mountains in USA. The Arkansas sharpening stones are oilstones and are very suitable for sharpening carving and turning tools, because they are very dense and wear-resistent. They are made of Novaculite, it is a form of microcrystalline or cryptocrystalline quartz. The color varies from white to grey-black and the specific gravity shows an increase from 2.2 to 2.5. The very hard dense rock is used as a whetstone. It has been mined since prehistoric times both as material for use as arrow and spear points and as sharpening stones. Grit approx. 6000-8000.
The US-based company Diamond Machining Technology, Inc. (DMT) is the leading manufacturer of quality diamond sharpening stones. DMT tools are precision manufactured, highly wear resistant and extremely effective. The monocrystalline diamonds*, permanently embedded in a nickel matrix, guarantee remarkable sharpening speed, even when working the hardest tool steels. The diamond-coated blocks remain permanently plane, and are especially suitable for tools with straight blades as well as for producing plane surfaces (e.g. backs of plane and chisel blades, plane soles, scrapers). Also suitable for carbide coated cutters, HSS as well as non-metal materials (glass, ceramic etc.).
