Bora HoneRite #1 is designed for use with all makes of diamond lapping plate systems, Norton India stones, Arkansas stones etc. and it can also be used with the latest lapping and diamond film sharpening systems.
It should NOT be used with water stones.
It can also be used to ‘revive’ old oil stones and slips that are clogged with oil and steel particles.
Apply HoneRite #1 by brush to the surface of the sharpening system being used. Because of its low viscosity it will not clog the surface of the ultra-fine abrasives now available in lapping film form. Ordinary household light oils are not suitable for this sharpening system. Once sharpened the tool may be protected from corrosion by wiping with HoneRite #1 To revive old sharpening stones, simply immerse the stone or slip in a glass jar of HoneRite #1 and it will dissolve the thickened oil.
