Dad been a little “dull” lately? Maybe it’s time to “whet” his appetite for sharpening. We are really “keen” on this new Belgian Blue Whetstone from Boker. At a grit of 5000, it is a perfect companion for their yellow Ardennes stone. It does not require oil, and it is a pleasure to use. A gift sure to “edge” out anything else your Dad might get for Father’s day this year!
