the honest answer is that I don't know, I don't even know what kind of stone it is, the guy I bought it from said that he bought the stones in bulk, didn't know a lot about them and that all he did was attach them to wood to sell at the ren-fair. It will sharpen a blade to an acceptable edge for use as a tool at camp but it won't give an edge good enough for the chip-carving knife so I think I'll have to find some other grades
I have quite a lot of small stones for sharpening lathe toots, chisels etc.. the problem is they've all been used with oil and can't be used with water, meaning I'd have to include oil in the tool kit, that said, I might end up doing this anyway for blade maintenance?
