    Yup all of them. Stack 'em up for you guy's with hundreds of hones. My wife says,
    looking at my meager collection of hones, "do you really need all of those"? I tell her this is hardly any hones at all, just what I need to get the jobs done. So help out here honemeisters!

    #1000 grit only. And there's been a few more added since the picture was taken. At least 4 more #1000. Atoma #400 up the back.



    And it's not even 1/5 of all the stones I have for my own amusement/answering questions.

    We won't count stock on the shelf now, will we?

    You can't show them all at once, you have to leave something to the imagination.

    My stone collection include set of Naniwa SS 1k-3k-5k-8k-10k, Coticule "La Dressante" Selected 200x75, Coticule slurry stone and Tsushima nagura which I use for cleaning and opening my Naniwas.
    Also I must say that Naniwas are not so often in my rotation because I preffer smooth edges that my Coticule deliver using Dilucot method.

    Which sins couldn't be linked to posting pictures like this? Avaritia, invidia, hubris or superbia, vanagloria and even ira easily can if one isn't careful. Oftentimes they encourage hoarding, incite fads and not infrequently they drive up prices as well.

    , notwithstanding the fact that one's better half is always right, always has the privilege to be right, and/or should at all times be entitled to exert the prerogative of curbing, nay correcting one's own fads, I'm sure pictures like this one:Name:  P5191116 small.JPG

    Hone porn? This? Not really. For one thing, artificial hones have no place here; they're all the same anyway. And isn't the objective to highlight the specific and individual virtues of each particular hone?

    - or maybe the term 'hone porn' is appropriate after all, bearing in mind the relation porn has to true love.
