Whetstones from Eidsborg

About

Whetstone from Eidsborg is the oldest export article in Norway. With continuous production from the Viking era and up to around 1950, this activity laid the foundation for The Telemark Canal as an important transport and trade route. West- Telemark Museum has its own theme exhibition on whetstones.

From the mueseum i Eidsborg there is a walking trail up to Brunåslid quarry.
