    I have a couple of Aoto stones. They can have inclusions that need to be lapped out. They pop up at various times.
    Sandpaper is much faster.

    Well, you know quartzite is metamorphosed sandstone and should be the same hardness as quartz 6.5- 7 on the mohs scale. I would imagine it would perform very similar to my beryl Hone which is around 7.8-8 on the mohs. I thought the beryl was a good polisher but not good in the lower grits.

    My dad taught me to never argue with a woman with an axe.


    as Twain said
    When I was a boy of fourteen, my father was so ignorant I could hardly stand to have the old man around. But when I got to be twenty-one, I was astonished at how much the old man had learned in seven years.

    LOL your dad seems to be a wise man!

    Ok, so the sculpture arrived.
    Sprayed water on and it stays quite well, no soaking.
    Tried a Solinger blade with little effect.
    A Sheffield silver steel just laughs at it.

    After that short look I'd say the hone doesn't cut wax.
