Variant of a natural Yellow Lake Welsh slate sharpening stone for "apexoid" size. The stone is glued to a 3 mm thick aluminum blank with dovetail ends and marked with a laser engraving. The size of the stone (without blank) is 150x25x5 mm.
Rock for making a sharpening stone called Yellow Lake (or Yellow Lake) was mined in north Wales in the area of \u200b\u200bthe reservoir of the same name, along with other well-known sharpening slates, such as, for example, Llyn Melynllyn or Llyn Idwal. Yellow Lake Sharpening Stones are the finest of UK slates and are recommended for sharpening straight razors but are also excellent for finishing processes on any cutting tool. The stone is quite soft compared to other Welsh shales, but even when working with water, it is positioned with a grit equivalent to 15,000 grit. The stone is gray in color and can be used with both water and oil. But the main recommendation is water, because in this case Yellow Lake produces an extremely rich suspension. The use of Yellow Lake Slurik (more precisely, the suspension induced by it) significantly improves the result obtained during sharpening.
