We know from science class that water and high carbon steel do not like each other. That’s why grinding, honing, sharpening, and lapping your steel tools also require extensive drying and rustproofing. HoneRite #1 addresses that by changing the water to a non-corrosive state. Yes, you read that correctly – our HoneRite #1 ensures that your tools will not rust after sharpening.
Not only will this universal grinding, honing and lapping additive make water non-corrosive, it will also apply protection onto the steel in the form of water soluble corrosion inhibitors. So you can get rid of the rolls of paper towels, shop rags, and separate rust inhibitors. Just a quick dry-off, and you’re done (and if you wish, apply a little HoneRite #1 after drying for more rust protection).
