    Default LA/ So. Cal, Mini Honing Meet

    LA/ So. Cal, Mini Honing Meet

    So, anyone interested in a LA/ So. Cal, Mini Honing Meet in Diamond Bar the weekend of July 9 or 10th?

    I know it is short notice, but had some interest, bring your stones and razors or I have plenty of both, to try different stones and learn.

    Probably start around 10 or 11 and go till done…

    Respond to this post,

    Marty

    Can we bring Scotch or Tequila?

    I have no hones but I have a few razors that I would get sharpened and learn how to hone in the process.

    Ok guys, looks like we are settling on Sunday 7/10/16 to meet.

    Let’s shoot for 10 am in case it is hot. I will pm the address, to all that respond. Typically, we go till the afternoon but, have gone as late as 7PM with a large group. It’s up to you.

    Still plenty of room if you want to come, let me know so I have enough seating.

    Bring your razors and stones, but if you don’t have either, I have beaters and tons of stone to use and try out, as well as strops and pastes.

    Hey guys, just sent out PM with address and directions.

    PM me, if you did not receive it and want to come, plenty of room.

    I have tons of stones and razors, but bring your own if you have them.

    We’ll shoot for 10am in case it is still hot. But don't sweat the time.

    Hey Marty, just wanted to send out a big public *THANK YOU* for hosting the mini meet this past weekend. It was very generous of you to open your home to other razor enthusiasts and give your time to teach us. I feel that I learned a ton about honing- especially what to look for and a few problem solving tips.

    I showed the Wostenholm you worked on to my father (who gave it to me originally) and he was impressed. I can't wait to put it to the test, probably Wednesday or Thursday.

    @MedicineMan: Great to meet you and thanks for coming!

    I look forward to putting some of this newfound knowledge to the stones soon. Thank you again!

    -Wes
