Copper Scythe Stone Holder
Whetstone holders are partially filled with water and hook conveniently on your belt. Scythe stones are used wet. This keeps the grain of the stone open, provides lubrication and makes a slurry of stone particles that will enhance the cutting action. Honing the edge is done frequently in the field. As soon as you feel a loss of efficiency in the cut, it's time to dress the blade.
