For grinding tool steel a white “friable” stone works very
well. The carborundum wheels that come on grinders
when you buy them hold up really well for grinding welds
and garden tools, but they aren’t very good for
neatly grinding tool steel.

Those carborundum stones are very hard and they get
clogged with metal bits. The soft white stones (Norton)
wear away much easier and because of that they
don’t clog and they also run cooler.
