Oil or water sharpening stone. Using a sharpening stone requires a lubricant, which can be oil or water (don’t mix the two).
Once the stone is lubricated with water or a drizzle of oil, you will obtain a razor sharp cutting edge by regular passes of the edge of your Morta knife blade over the sharpening stone.
Size: 16 cm long x 3.5 cm wide x 1.5 cm thick.
Atelier JHP offers stones that have two sides with 2 grains: one slightly granular for rapid sharpening, the other polished for a finer finish.
Their compact size, while still generous, makes them easy to use, both at home or when camping or hiking for instance.
Saurat natural sharpening stone
The last manufacturer of natural sharpening stones, founded in the early 1900s, is located in the Saurat valley, at the foot of the Ariège Pyrenees.
The exploitation of this schistose sandstone, with its very fine grain and mineralogical purity, which produces rational, perfect sharpening, has given rise to the creation of a full range of sharpening tools.
