Sharpening stone for kitchen knives and razor blades


The Author
The Belgian company Ardennes-Coticule, founded in 1998, is carrying on the business activities started by the first owner, Burton, in 1865, maintaining the age-old Renaissance knowhow in the production of the whetstone Coticule. 

The Object
The sharpening stone is mined from soft, grey-yellow sedimentary rocks built up from clay and volcanic ash, the consistency of Ardennes’ soil. An ideal, quick and delicate way to sharpen your valuable knives and razors.



Pour water on the honing surface of the whetstone. Create an abrasive grinding compound by making circular movements with a slurry stone over the honing surface of the whetstone. This can also be done with a finger. After a while, reduce the abrasiveness during honing by gradually diluting the grinding compound with water. After diluting the grinding compound, continue sharpening with a little water until the desired fineness is obtained.

Small curved blades are sharpened with alternately moving both sides of the blade while pressing gently and at the correct angle (10°) across the whetting surface. 
Small straight blades are sharpened with alternately moving both sides of the blade while pressing gently and at the correct angle (10°) across the whetting surface. Large objects are sharpened by laying them on a sturdy surface and making circular movements along both sides of the blade with the whetstone.

Making the surface flat:

Place a sheet of sandpaper grind 80 - 100 on a flat surface. Add a little water and rub the polishing surface of the whetstone. Flat again on it by making circular movements.

Storage of the whetstone:

Belgian whetstones do not have to be cleaned before being stored. They are non-porous stones, which mean that the polishing surface cannot clog up. Keep the box free of water to prevent deformation.
