Non-petroleum based premium blend
Built-in stone cleaning agents
Helps inhibit rust and corrosion
Ideal for lubricating Arkansas & Diamond stones
Smith's specially formulated Honing Solution is non-petroleum-based and features built-in stone cleaning agents and rust/corrosion inhibitors. It is excellent for lubricating your Arkansas or Diamond Stone when sharpening. Never use an Arkansas Stone without some kind of lubricant, or you will clog the pores and cause it not to sharpen properly. Diamond Stones can be used dry, but Smith's recommends that you use a lubricant for better performance.
