Budapest - Hungary
Hi All,

As a former chef, I have always been interested in sharpening and whetstones. About 10 years ago I jumped in and started developing my own whetstone. After much research I came to a formula that worked, it was a mixture of ceramic and silicon carbide sharpening stone. Based on the feedback, it worked well, but I also became interested in corundum abrasives. All grinding materials have pros and cons. Now I mainly produce these White Fused Alumina whetstones in Budapest, Hungary under the name Haidu.
The name Haidu comes from the name "Hajdú", which means cowboy in Hungarian. :)

May the edge be with you,
Attila Balogh
