9. How do the Contour Hone Stones compare to the pink ceramic stone and the white ceramic stone from Wolff Industries? 

The ceramic stones from Wolff Industries are very good and we still sell them. However, the contour hone stones will give a more accurate and smoother ride to all types of shears. This is why we have switched to the contour hone stone instead of the Wolf ceramic stones in our start up kit for new sharpeners beginning today.
