The Gransfors Natural Whetstone is comprised of two unique natural materials which are chosen to best supply the needs of coarse and fine grinding.
The coarse side is made from a sandstone from Orsa with a grain from 120-200 grit. This sandstone has been used as a sharpening stone since the 1500s and its qualities of a coarse slightly porous surface work well to grind and edge back to its original geometry and begin sharpening before final honing.
The fine side is made from a fine-grained slate from Los. This is a unique material only found here and has been used as a whetstone since the late 1800s. Featuring a smooth and hard surface the Los stone has a grain size of between 500-1000 grit. The fin-grained, smooth surface has the qualities to achieve and extremely sharp edge with a good bite.
The Whetstone is user friendly and easy to hold with a firm grip making it easy to sharpen an edge by following the existing bevel and grind angle.
