TOP (english)
“This stone is intended for sharpening razors, mechanical razor blades, and all instruments with a fine edge. For a razor, use it as you would with an ordinary leather strop. For razor blades, use the blade holder. For other instruments with a fine edge, sharpen as you would normally do, only using the stone. Don’t put anything on the stone as it needs to be used dry, and don’t bear down when sharpening.”
