This listing is for one sharpening stone. The photograph is representative of what you may receive.
Type: Belgian Yellow Selected, Mined in Belgium
Grit: approx. 8000-10000
Ideal for: Sharpening/Finishing and edge retention.
Not suitable for: Chamfering and chip removal
Dimensions: 150x40mm, thickness varies.
Directions for use: Wet the stone under running water and then pass the razor with “outward” movements on both sides, keeping the stone wet from time to time. Finish directly under running water. The stone provides a sharp and effective edge finish.
Recommended for users with some sharpening experience due to the narrow size, this stone fits well in the palm of the hand.
Although the estimated grit is 8000-10000, the abrasive power of this stone is very respectable. It only takes a few strokes of the razor over the stone to realize how much material is removed. For this reason, it is important for the user to be careful not to apply too much force to the razor when passing over the stone.
According to the manufacturer, Ardennes Coticule, the stone is already lapped and ready to use. However, we would recommend flattening these stones before use.
This stone should be used on the yellow side.
Selected Belgian Yellow Natural Stone can be used with or without slurry. To obtain a slurry, we recommend using a Ardennes Selected stone bout (sold separately).
