The Black Hard Arkansas is the densest of Arkansas stones and produces the finest edges possible. This stone is also called "surgical black" by some manufacturers.
Stone color can vary black to blue-black
Arkansas are not measured by grit size or color, instead they are divided by specific gravity into grades or hardness - the softer the stone the more coarse it performs, the harder the finer it performs.
