Earth leaves – Yamaichi small quarry whetstone

This natural quarry stone from the north of Kyoto, comes via our knife supplier (Robert Herder) and is their recommendation for the polishing of small blades and pocket knives. Which is why we have an option to buy this whetstone with the ‘Hippenkniep’ Pocket Knife at the special price of £57.25.

Each whetstone is unique, with a natural, raw stone finish showing the delightful colour and texture variation. It has a grain of 8000-10000 for a fine finish and polish after sharpening,

Prior to use, moisten it with water and once finished rinse under water and place in a ventilated space, out of direct sunlight, to dry.
