The whetstone is made of a fine silt stone, possibly from the Welsh borders. In plan the whetstone is an elongated trapezoidal shape. The two long side edges are not quite parallel. The wide lower edge is slightly rounded and abraded, but maybe the original edge. The opposite edge is a broken edge. The upper surface of the stone is smooth and the edges rounded, and tapers in depth towards the lower edge. The reverse is a flat face, but is not a smooth as the other face.
