    Default Hones score from the wilds!

    I'm not sure if this thread should be in "Show and Tell" or "Hones", but since it's all hones I put it here.

    Found a nice box of hones at the flea market, got a great deal on them!

    There are 5 Arkansas stones in wooden boxes/bases, 2 translucent Arkansas stones, a Tam-O-Shanter, a coticule razor hone unused in box, a thick Purple Welsh slate, an unknown very fine tan hone, a small Charnley Forest, a fine manmade hone in wooden base (feels like same material as a barber hone), and a Cortland barber hone. I haven't cleaned or lapped any of them yet, this is how I found 'em!

    Here are some closer pics.

    Two translucent Arkansas stones and a Tam-O-Shanter. One of the Arks is wide 3 x 6 x 7/8.

    A small Charnley and an unknown tan super fine stone (looks very promising).

    An unknown manmade hone, feels very fine just like a barber hone and similar color but bigger. 7 x 2 x 7/8.

    Soon to be cleaning and lapping them, can wait to try them out. I'll probably get pictures up after they are ready. Thanks for checking them out.

    Nice!
    You will have a whole bunch of fun trying each of. That is an exceptional find.
