Slurik is a bar for directing the suspension on the working surface of the grinding stone. Basically, the suspension is actively released during sharpening on various bars made from shale rocks. Accordingly, using a small piece of slate, it is possible to effectively induce a suspension both on a stone of the same breed and on other grinding stones (natural or synthetic), even on those that do not emit their own suspension, but at the same time perfectly allow you to work on a "foreign ", induced by red lead. Working on a suspension significantly increases the productivity of the sharpening process, makes it tactilely softer, a stone with a suspension begins to work in a completely different way. There are sharpening techniques, with the help of which, on one lapping platform (for example, made of fine-grained sandstone, which does not emit its own suspension and practically does not affect the result of processing the surface of the supply), the entire grinding cycle from peeling to finishing is carried out by sequentially changing , in the Japanese interpretation) of various grain sizes. Suspension, both from slurik and from the working surface of the stone, is knocked out when used as a coolant - water. Therefore, work with slurik must be carried out precisely with the use of water as a lubricating fluid. The proposed slurik is made from Llyn Melynllyn shale, one of the famous Welsh slate types previously mined in the UK, North Wales, in the Yellow Lake area. It is a purple microcrystalline siliceous schist with a thin layered structure. Its use gives a pronounced smoothing effect, does not injure the cutting edge and is recommended for use with straight razors and other cutting tools at the stages of finishing (in cases where exceptionally fine finishing operations are required on natural stones). At the same time, the use of Llyn Melynllyn Slurik significantly increases the abrasive ability of the base stone, while providing excellent quality of cleanliness of the treated surface. Slate Llyn Melynllyn has a characteristic burgundy (purple, purple) color. The abrasive capacity of this sample of Llyn Melynllyn shale rock has been tested and determined to be 12,000 grit. Slurik Llyn Melynllyn has a very dense structure and practically does not absorb water, so it does not need to be soaked before use. With water, Llyn Melynllyn gives a violet tint suspension. Slurik Llyn Melynllyn has dimensions of 52x22x24mm, does not require pre-treatment or finishing and is completely ready for use.
