Generally a grindstone is made up of many small abrasive grains. The abrasive grains have sharp edges with which the steel is ground. Once you use the grindstone, small pieces break off from the abrasive grains. The larger the numerical data, the smaller the abrasive grains. Stones with a coarse grain size are used in order to reshape the cutting edge of a blunt knife. For fine work a grindstone with a finer grit has to be used.
