Double sided axe stone
A double sided portable whetstone for use on axes and other straight or convex garden and outdoor tools. Always used with water the stone has a coarser (darker) side of 150 grit for the rapid restoration of damaged or neglected edges, and a finer(paler) side of 600 grit, with a groove between for grip and to protect fingers during the sharpening process. Best used with small circular motions moving steadily back and forth along the whole length of the edge and with equal work to both sides (assuming a symmetrical blade). Supplied with a leather case.
