Grindstones naturally generate at village weaponsmiths.

When used, a GUI is displayed with two input slots and one output slot.
Putting two damaged items of the same type as inputs will combine their durabilities to form a new item in the output slot, with an added 5% durability as a bonus. Any non-curse enchantments on the top item will be removed upon performing the action, returning an amount of experience for each. This can range from just a few points for low-level enchantments such as Efficiency I or Protection I, to a large amount of experience for higher ones. The bottom input item will be sacrificed in this operation.
A single enchanted (book and weapon) item can also be placed in either input slot, which just removes its non-curse enchantments, returning an amount of experience for each, without repairing it or sacrificing another item.
Using a grindstone removes any prior work penalty the item has. Grindstones do not remove items' custom names.
If the action is not applicable (e.g. the two inputs are different items), the arrow will have a red cross, like that of the anvil.
If a village has a grindstone and there is no weaponsmith villager in the village, any villager who didn't already pick a job site block has a chance to change their profession into weaponsmith.
