    Description

    Smith’s specially formulated Honing Solution is nonpetroleum 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 we recommend that you use a lubricant for better performance.

    I picked up a bottle of Smith's Honing Solution, just another bottle of honing oil. I was very suprised when I used it on an older stone that over the years had degraded with old oil, dirt, metal etc. As I started using the honing solution I quickly found out it was not oil, but some type of water based lubricant. It started cleaning the stone restoring it's surface. It drys out a bit with use but a couple drops of water on the stone and you're back in business. I couldn't be happier with the product and recommend it without hesitation. I have been sharpening knives for 50 years so I know a little bit about sharpening, way to go Smith's.
