Jasper Stone Whetstone, Made into a Large Pendant for Fine Honing of Blades.

Sometimes called sharpening stones. or honing stones, whetstones were traded by the Vikings and their origin from archeological finds can be traced back to mines in France and Germany. The whetstones were important for the Viking as their metal tools and edges had to be kept sharp and in good condition.

Viking whetstones similar to these have been found in Viking graves in Gjermundbu, Norway, Ile de Groix in France, Birka and Gotland in Sweden and at dig sites in York, England, UK. These whetstones are made of jasper, a semi-precious stone in the chalcedony group - an opaque fine-grained quartz with various appearance & colours and 7 on the Moh's Hardness Scale.

Copies of Viking whetstones found in York, England, UK, made from the same banded jasper as the originals. Chosen for their beautiful colours and patterns, each whetstone is unique. They are used for fine honing of knives & tools and come with a yard of 2mm leather thong, enabling them to be hung around the neck or attached to your belt.

- Length 80mm (3.25 inches).
- Bottom width 22mm (0.85 inch), top width 15mm (0.6 inch).
- Depth 10mm (0.4 inch).
- Comes complete with 1 yard (90cm) of 1.5mm width black leather thong with 3mm hole drilled for hanging.
- Natural jasper stone, so each one is unique in colour and pattern, ranging from a fairly plain single colour to intricate banding in several colours
- Great for fine sharpening (honing) of any blade.
