    Default Got a box of hones today

    Recieved one of my groups of hones, and no, there are no Eschers. I thought I was on to one but no. Did get two really nice stones however. These look pretty old, I am thinking 30's or 40's. A Norton Hard Arkansas "jewelers stone" which is a pretty nice translucent Arkansas, and a Norton "razor" hone, two sided, in great shape, both with boxes. Also a swaty, keen, and a bunch of other nice but unidentifiable hones. I bet I can con my son into cleaning them up and giving him the swaty for doing it.....Maeglin, where are you?

    Try using "Fume Off" oven cleaner to get the hones clean. It is very effective.

    Pssst! The Swaty is probably the best hone in the bunch!
