The King 'Mensuly' fixing stone is used to re-flatten Japanese whetstones, using a combination of iron filings and water. It has a roughly textured and patterned flat surface stone, on which you apply either medium or fine iron filings (supplied) and then water. The whetstone is then flattened by applying force in a to-and-fro motion on the flattening stone. We include instructions for use with your shipment.
