Sharpening Stone from Finland
Superb natural stone from Finland, these are cut from a quarry thats been in use for many centuries (and possibly over millennia or more) the ancient Phyllite stone is an excellent whetstone and has honed the knives of Vikings and Northmen over the countless years. The Stone is fine grained and silky and produces excellent results.
The cutting of the stone is limited to one man, the 'Stoneman' whose family have undertaken this task for many generations and all the stone is selected and cut by hand, by him.
By the way, the 'mud' created by the sharpening process helps the final polish of the knife.
