Description

The more garnets that are released to the surface of the stone in the slurry ‘mud’ when sharpening, the faster (due to the more course cutting action) the whetstone can become.

This slurry gives the stone more versatility over a wider “grit” range which is important when using Belgian stones (most naturals actually); as just plain water alone can equate to a very fine / polishing and in turn slower stone.

This small Belgian Blue (BBW) slurry stone is used with water by rubbing it on the surface of the main Belgian Blue (BBW) whetstone surface. This process (only takes a minute or so) creates a slurry (a thick-ish mud), that is used to help create different levels of grit (coarseness) all on the one whetstone (rather than using multiple stones of different grits in succession). By diluting the slurry with water after each stage of sharpening (until you get down to just water on the whetstone alone), you can make the cutting action more and more fine to a polishing stage (i.e course to finer grit as stated above).

Of course, if you have any extremely blunt knife, a synthetic course stone will usually be needed to set the initial bevel, where like any higher/finer grit stone, the BBW would take far to long to accomplish.
