Coarse Stones (#500 and under)
Coarse grit: Perfect for repairs such as tip fixes, chips, bevel-setting, and other heavy material removal. Coarse grit edges are great for meat cleavers or boning knives. The rougher the edge, the toothier and the more aggressive the edge will be, making it suitable for biting into slippery surfaces like
fatty outer skin of an animal for butchery, bell peppers or tomatoes.
