A penciled edge resembles the end of a pencil eraser with a slight radius.
A chamfered edge is 45 ° cut into the edge of the stone. The deeper the cut, the wider the bevel face is.
This edge treatment is very common and offers a clean and simple look. Easing an edge offers a square flat face with the sharp edge on top rounded slightly. Sometimes, the eased edge is rounded enough to be called a quarter round edge.
Full or Half Bull-nose
The full bull-nose offers perhaps the most contemporary look. A side view of full bull-nose shows the shape of a half circle. The full bull-nose is gentle on the body and has no edges to chip. The half bull-nose edge can also be called the round-over because instead of being squared off, it is rounded over.
A Rock Faced edge finish is produced by striking the stone surface with a chisel leaving a rough natural edge finish.
The thermal finish is produced by applying a high-temperature torch to the surface of the stone leaving a rough-textured finish.
