    F/S Hall's ProEdge surgical black Arkansas

    Surgical Black Arkansas is one of the finest grades of abrasives available today. Most commonly used for industrial applications where an extremely fine polish is required.

    The stone measures 8" x 3" by 1" thick, which provides an elevated work surface for ease of use, and comes with a custom wooden box for storage.

    NIB, $70 includes insured shipping within CONUS and PayPal fees.

    The surgical black is roughly equivalent to JIS 5000, so for razors it would be a bridge stone for a transition to a higher grit like a Naniwa SS 12k or Shapton Pro 15k or to a loaded strop.

    Boar D. Laze (BDL) has an excellent discussion of Arkansas stones on his blog: http://www.cookfoodgood.com/?p=21

    I bought this for razor use, but acquired a Shapton Pro 15k before I had a chance to use it.

    From what I've read, it would be an excellent polisher for ODC.

    I have two black arks,one is close to 6k, the other seems more like a 8 to 10 k grit. Great stones. Nice grab Pierre

    Been looking for a black arks for a bit now. Found lots of smaller ones, a few bigger, but they were thin. I here there are some translucent ones out there, that intrigues me.

    I have an Arky translucent that makes crazy high polish. It is finer than my shobudani asagi. It makes a finer polish than anything than I have used. They are not all the same!
