I think my whetstone has smoothed over by constant use at work, is there a way to repair it or should I just go buy another?

    What kind of whetstone is this - oilstone, ceramic waterstone, soft synthetic waterstone, natural waterstone? – rackandboneman May 1 '18 at 20:39

  • I believe it is a natural whetstone, would a flattening stone help at all? – Jade So May 1 '18 at 22:40
  • Picture, please? Is it circular, cylindrical, cuboid? What material is it made of? – Fabby May 2 '18 at 20:12

    A waterstone it is then ... most of them should rarely get clogged as badly as you describe... and yes, in most cases a flattening stone will be effective on these. – rackandboneman May 3 '18 at 21:06
