Norton 4-1/2-ounce sharpening stone oil is formulated for oilstone lubrication, with the correct viscosity for smooth
sharpening without loading or clogging stones; it flushes away dislodged abrasive and metal chips to prevent metal from

This 4-1/2-oz. can of sharpening stone oil, measuring 5 x 2 x 1 inch (H x W x D), has a snug-fitting lid, stores
compactly, and fits into Norton portable sharpening systems for mobile use. (H is height, the vertical distance from
lowest to highest point; W is width, the horizontal distance from left to right; D is depth, the horizontal distance
from front to back.) This oil meets U.S. Pharmacopeia (USP) standards for mineral oil purity and U.S. Food and Drug
Administration (FDA) regulations for use near food (FDA 21 CFR 178.3620).
Sharpening stones, or whetstones, are abrasive surfaces used to sharpen and hone the edges of steel cutting implements,
such as chisels, knives, scissors, hand scrapers, and plane blades. Sharpening is the process of creating or
re-establishing a cutting edge by grinding away portions of the metal to adjust the angle of the edge and reform the
shape. Honing removes small imperfections. Stones can be flat, for working flat edges, or shaped, for edges that are
more complex. When used with lubricating liquid, a sharpening stone can be called a waterstone or an oilstone, based on
the lubricant required. Oilstones use sharpening stone oil for lubrication when sharpening, to prevent metal from
bonding with the abrasive surface by flushing away dislodged abrasive and metal chips.
