"We currently do not have packaging or instructions for the 308F Golden Stone, however there have been so many inquiries that we decided to offer the stone for sale without these items." - Spyderco
Spyderco's Golden Stone sharpening device is all curves and angles for sharpening any edge. U.S.A. Made, from Alumina Ceramic, it's created through a process combining a bonding agent with alumina particles (that are actually synthetic sapphires 15 to 25 microns in size). It is then kiln fired at temperatures exceeding 3000 degrees F (1649-C) where it reaches 9 (out of 10) on a Mohs hardness scale and is cooled in stages.
Ceramic sharpeners are used dry without oil or water. The fine grit Golden Stone is closed-cell and won't wear with usage or time, excelling at polishing and professionally finishing any edge. Holding the stone vertically on a tabletop and tilting it from one side to the other creates a 20° angle (40° total angle) for sharpening knife blades. Both sides are elliptical for sharpening PlainEdges, and SpyderEdges (serrations). Positioned on its' side horizontally creates a 12.5° angle for sharpening scissors. Suede leather carry case doubles as a non-skid counter top pad for tabletop sharpening.
