A joint publication of The Tools and Trades History Society, UK and The Traditional Tools Group (Inc.), Australia, by Brian Read and Doug Moran

This unusual and useful guide examines many of the natural sharpening stones that can be found by a tool collector. Each one is analysed and photographed as an aid to identification. In addition, practical tests were run to quantify the cutting performance of each one.

Stones are illustrated in colour. Chapters also cover manufacturing methods, locations of known quarry sites and reproductions from old catalogues.
