The carving slips in these sets are all a full 4" long and designed to match typical carving tool profiles. This means that they are long enough for you to get a good grip on the stone and produce a fine long stroke, which makes it easier to keep the sharpening angle consistent and makes the sharpening go much faster. While sharpening carving tools and molding plane blades is always tedious, oilstones wear tough and don’t lose their shape as fast as other sharpening media. This helps keep sharp profiles on your tools. We carry the slips in kits of four standard shapes in a choice of three materials: Soft Arkansas for quickly forming a wire edge and either hard or translucent Arkansas for final honing and chasing of the wire edge. In general, we consider the sharpening grits of both hard and translucent Arkansas to be equivalent, but some people prefer the translucent, in spite of its additional cost. We also offer complete sets of the soft Arkansas slips combined with either hard or translucent Arkansas slips for greater saving.
