In SLASH'EM, a whetstone is a gray stone that can remove rust and negative enchantments (up to +0) from an edged weapon or a pick-axe. This action requires a source of water (fountain, sink, toilet or pool). Stand at some water and apply the whetstone.

If you fail, you can try again. If you always fail, your gray stone is not a whetstone. If you succeed, you remove one level of rust; or if there was no rust, you remove one point of negative enchantment.
Note that a whetstone cannot remove corrosion.
If your gray stone is not a whetstone, then you will try to sharpen the edge, but your attempt will always fail.
