    Simpler is better, except when complicated looks really cool.

    In a Paul Hogan / Crocodile Dundee voice:

    “That’s not a sharpening stone.
    This is a sharpening stone!”



    The whetstone, with the heads of eight gods on it, that formed a part of the Crown Jewels of Raedwald, Bretwalda and King of the East Saxons, and was buried in the Sutton Hoo ship burial..

    Oozuku stones are natural rather than artificial, meaning that their colors, shapes, sizes, thicknesses, and other characteristics are unique to each stone. https://www.fendrihan.com/products/o...ural-whetstone
    It really is quite difficult to build an ugly wooden boat.

    I have a nice 8" long,1-3/4" wide, 1" thick hunk of slate my grandfather would use to hone his scyth. I used to employ it as my last of a succession of stones for knives, but changed over to leather and oxide powder some years ago.

    I researched the traditional way to sharpen my Higonokami. Originally, an extremely hard fine-grained stone was rubbed with a softer stone to create a slurry. As it is hard to find the stones, I use a small slate sharp stone, rubbed with a fine sandstone, to make the slurry. It seems to work OK.

    I’ll stick with grey white and green Arkansas. Any finer edge that those three can produce is wasted on me.
