Check with HIGHLAND WOODWORKING. Stones are very important to hand woodworkers for sharpening wood chisels and plane blades. Most everybody in that line has switched over to Japanese water stones because you can put a mirror finish on your blades. With gravers, knives, chisels and any other blade, a fixtrue of some sort will hold the blade better than you can do with your hand. If you do wear a grove in your stone you can always flatten it back out with a diamond coated sharpening strip. Harbor Freight carrys them at a reasonable price. The Harbor Freight sharpening stones (not the diamond coated strips) are terrible so don’t waste your money on them. I also have a three stone set (Arkansas Stones) I bought from Woodcraft. Any stone can be flattened back with a diamond strip.
