Sharpening a knife or "puukko". 1. Moisten the stone with water. 2. Hold the knife at angle of 20 degrees (or the angle of the edge to be sharpened) so that the knife lies on the stone. Grind the edge with a circular motion so that some burr is created to the end of the edge. Repeat for other side of the knife edge. The mud emerging on op of the stone helps the process, so do not rinse it away. 3. In the end the burr is neutralised with a few strong strokes on both sides with a slightly sharper angle than when sharpening (as if cutting thin shave from the stone). When sharpening scissors remember to grind with parallel strokes and only to grind the cutting edge (do not touch the flat side). You can sharpen a cheese slicer with the sharp end of the stone. With the narrow end of the stone you can reach other awkward places. You can use the stone as a nail file or to sharpen hooks, various chisels, scythes and sickles.

The villagers and boys were amazed and in awe when a huge oddity rolled down the road in September, 1922. Alfred Kosola’s horses had to tax their strength when drawing a sleigh with an indenting hammer of 5.000 kilograms, along the snowless road to the Järvenpää’s factory. The cubs’ imagination really took over, when they began to hear a constant pounding from the factory. It was like an iron giant’s sledgehammer banging.
