Vintage tools - sharpening stone D278

Up for sale is a genuine Antique Natural CHARNLEY FOREST / Charnwood SHARPENING STONE from England in a gorgeous user made MAHOGANY box.

The stone is 218mm long, 44mm wide & 15mm thick, an older stone & hand cut most likely by an itinerant stone seller back in the 19th century.

Great for chisels, plane blades, knives & your straight razors, its a finishing stone & it puts a superlative edge on tools, I use a Charnley Forest stone if I want to take my chisels or plane blades to the "next level" after sharpening on a Washita, these are superfine & finer than a hard Arkansas in my opinion. It's a light green with the typical red veining through the stone.

Weight - 1kg


This sharpening stone is in authentic vintage condition, wear and tear consistent with age and use, a genuine natural CHARNLEY Forest stone. There are some natural variations in colour, some edge chips & the stone should be flattened / dressed, its silky smooth & a magnificent stone, these aren't commercially available any more.

Please check the photos as they are part of the description.
