The Skerper Arkansas Deluxe Honing Kit is a complete sharpening set including 3 medium sized stones, honing oil, and a wooden storage box. The 3 stones come in varying grits: Soft Arkansas, Hard Arkansas and Hard Black Arkansas. The Soft Arkansas at 400-600 grit is the perfect stone to start the sharpening process where you need to set the initial bevel, and/or remove chips and rolls from the edge. The next stone is the Hard Arkansas at 800-1000 grit. This stone provides the initial polish to the blade and gives it a slightly polished, toothy edge. The Hard Black Arkansas at 2000-3000 grit is a polishing stone to further refine the edge from the previous stone.
Stones are beautiful and doing their job fine. Box closing mechanism and internal separator are not so fine but it is ok to store. I have bought it for pocket knives and I am happy with my purchase, but would be too small for kitchen knives.
