Yellow coticule natural whetstone. These coticule stones of Belgian origin are well known by users of razors and classic razors, wood carvers, carpenters, furriers, butchers, cutlers, nature explorers, cooks and anyone who values ​​artisan natural products.

A Coticule whetstone consists of 2 layers. The top layer of Coticule is between 5 and 10 mm thick, depending on the Coticule seam (not all Coticule seams from our quarry are the same thickness). This layer of Coticule is glued onto an unusable black slate substrate. This substrate is used as a base since Coticule is quite a fragile material. Small cracks can be seen on the edges of the stone. This is perfectly normal for such a brittle material and does not influence the sharpening properties at all.

Sharpened with Coticule:

Sharpening always uses water. All that is required is to wet the surface of the Coticule; it is not necessary to submerge the stone. During sharpening, garnets are dislodged from the Coticule surface. The more garnets that are released, the more abrasive the abrasive compound becomes.

A frequently used method of increasing abrasiveness is to use a polishing stone (see small cutouts available on our website) to produce a high garnet polishing compound on the surface of the Coticule. This is achieved by rubbing the surface of one stone with another, the milky white polishing compound does not take long to appear (slurry). For fine burnishing, the abrasive compound is diluted in several stages with a small amount of water until finally only water remains on the surface.

Coticule is a non-porous stone and cannot be clogged. Use only water for sharpening, not oil. The oil is only used with porous stones to prevent iron particles from getting trapped in the pores and clogging them.

Flattened: Place a piece of sandpaper on a flat surface. Put some water and rub the stone until it is flat. use +/- 80 to 100 micron grit sandpaper.

Lifespan of stone: Lifespan depends on use. The more intensive the use, the faster the stone will wear out. In general, these whetstones last 20 years in normal use and with minimal care.
