Sharpening stones, also known as whetstones are normally used to grind and sharpen the cutting edges of tools and implements. There are sharpening stones of different materials, sizes and shapes. The material may be found in nature or may even be man-made.
These sharpening stones are available in numerous grades. They are usually graded by the grit size of the inherent particles. Stones with a fine grit are denser and they give a smoother finish to the sharpened surface. Conversely, coarser grit gives a rougher finish. The grading is often done by number and a higher number denotes a higher density stone that would give a finer finish.
