    Default American Hone Company.....

    Here are a few pics I took June 7 when I visited the American Hone Company. They are no longer making hones but still had a few pieces of equipment left. This is the lapping plate they used.....

    yeah I am, but I only post on special news like this one...

    kidding, of course... I still use the straight razor, but rarely visit the forums... between the kid at home and the 2 jobs, not much time really...

    just this morning I used one of my favorite razors that Randy gave to me, a huge Belgian one, reground to 6/8's with custom mahogany scales... sweet


    cheers guys, and always nice to read you too!

    Too cool, Randy! Thanks for sharing.... I assume you own it now, so you'd better bring it to the next meet!
