Who are we?

Nano Hone Advanced Abrasives is an innovative force designing every necessary component to sharpening systems for chefs, woodworkers, and scissor sharpeners alike. Offering stones, stages, ponds, and plates of various functions, we provide everything required for a substantial or casual sharpening station. 

"Nano" is in reference to the measurements taken of the flatness of our stones and plates which have height differentials of only a few microns. To "Hone" is to sharpen, and we hope to instill the notion that flatter means sharper.   

Upon microscopic observations, Hap Stanley saw what happens to consistency in performance of a ceramic whetstone over time. It has been shown that the flatter the stone, the more efficient each stroke is on the stone. 

Alongside the Nano Hone Universal System, Lapping Plate, and Strop series, Hap has created the first side-sharpening jig for chisels and skew blades with the invention of the Sharp Skate. The Sharp Skate 4 is the latest in hand sharpening assistance. It assists the sharpener in picking an angle and sticking with it, so the bevel and edge of your blades are always consistent. 

Efficiency is integral to flow. Complete your system today.
