I thought it was interesting how my host in China put two 8-inch benchstones end to end when sharpening his cleaver

Cool - Are they epoxied together, or just butted dry?

I think they were just butted up dry against each other but I didn't try to pick them up so I'm not totally sure.

I thought it could have been that the one up against the wall was there to prevent the one he's using for sharpening from slipping up on a slippery tile.

My thoughts exactly.

He was using the full length of both stones on his passes.

wow I would be afraid that the split in the stones would cause problems.

That looks very ergonomic.

That's why I went with epoxy on a hunch.

I dropped my stone fixer and it broke in two. I epoxied it together and leveled it with diamond plate so it's good to go again.
