Whetstones

Västilä, a village in Längelmäki, Finland the Stoneman of Wästilä quarreies the bedrock which has deposits of good quality, schistose mudstone. The stone has been blasted from rock and cut into slates for centuries by hand using a hammer and wedge.

The rock has matured into whetting stone (phyllite) slowly. In the course of millions years, great heat and pressure has forged into good quality and fine qrained mudstone. The main minerals in it are quartz, feldspar and mica. The quality varies considerably. The better quality soft rock is separated off each piece by hand.

The history of Wästilä Whetstone goes back for centuries and in its time whetsone provided employment and a source of income for Längelmäki. Wästilä Whetstone has also been imported to different Parts of the world for both weapons and tools.

The stone itself has been made by the Finnish god Ukko Ylijumala. The Wästilä Stoneman is responsible for quarrying and design using skills inherited from his forefathers.

The stone is sold and marketed by Wästikivi Oy.

Wet your stone with water and grind parallel to the angle of the knife edge and you will see how cleverly nature has built this sharpening stone.
