We end with current legal protections and proposed anti-bullying legislation, leaving ample time to answer your questions.

Celebrating 41 years of service, family owned and operated, Dan’s Whetstone Co., Inc. is a proud producer of American Made sharpening stone products. Located in Pearcy, Arkansas, just Southwest of Hot Springs, an industry leader as producer and distributor of Arkansas Novaculite stone and recognized around the world.

Mr. Dan Kirschman, a mining engineer and graduate from Colorado School of Mines, developed a fascination with Arkansas Novaculite stone after moving to Arkansas. He began cutting and finishing stones as a hobby, thus the beginning of Dan’s Whetstone Company, 1976, with the help and support of his family and simple philosophy – quality and service.  Today, Dan’s Whetstone Company is recognized as the industry standard, leading producer and supplier of Natural Arkansas Whetstone all over the world offering hundreds of different Arkansas Novaculite products. 

Genuine Arkansas Novaculite is a rare, natural resource that is mined in one small region in the state of Arkansas, mostly in Garland County area. The Arkansas Novaculite stone has earned the reputation of the most sought-after natural abrasive worldwide and premiere sharpening product used not just by knife sharpeners, also by woodworkers, jewelers, surgeons, dentists, veterinarians, die makers, gunsmiths, and goldsmiths.  Other applications:  calibration of x-ray crystallography machines and maintenance of ice skates and snow skis. 

Dan’s Whetstone Co., Inc. currently offers over 350 products and is the only Arkansas Novaculite stone producer that quarries, manufactures, and distributes Natural Arkansas Whetstone products worldwide. Dan’s owns over 500 acres of mineral properties and controls several quarries that supply the various grades of Novaculite used in manufacturing.  According to the reserve projections, these quarries will supply the next four generations or more, which would lead one to believe that Dan’s Whetstone will be in operation for many years to come.
