Old Whetstone, The

In Ófeigsfjord in North-West Iceland the old whetstone has been used to sharpen the knives for five generations. There are still some eccentrics like Petur Gudmundsson who live on and use the resources as his forefathers have done over the centuries. Here people have lived from the earth’s resources for generations: farming, fishing, collecting birds eggs and gathering driftwood.
