    Default New member in Tennessee. Looking for information on John primble hones

    Hey, my name is stacy. I'm possibly one of the few females around here. I have a john primble hone. It says John primble razor hone , goods of honour trade mark. I would like to find out if I can find when it was made n what grit it is, and maybe what it's worth. It's in good shape but has some places I think may be bad but I could be wrong. Any help would be appericiated. Oh. I am 38 yrs old. I'm in the eastern Tennessee area. I have some of my papaw old cups and brushes and even the soap. I have a few straight razors also. I've always been interested in this stuff. Thanks for reading. And thanks in advance for any help.

    Hello Stacy and welcome to SRP.
    Some good information given already.
    We don't assess anything for monetary value here. It's against the rules.
    Sounds like you have a fine collection of shaving heirlooms.
    Post some pictures if you can. We'd all love to see what you have.
    Enjoy your time here on the forum.

    Welcome to SRP!
    Definitely post a picture of the barber hone and someone will tell you if it is damaged or not.
    If it is damaged, there are links on this site on how to repair them.
    I seem to remember those hones being equivalent to a 10k hone, but the links above probably have the equivalent grit listed in them.

    Welcome. It is a great place to hang out and get information about razors and other sundry things shave related and if you are into restoring or using razors there is a lot you can learn here.
    It's not what you know, it's who you take fishing!

    Default Thanks for the welcome, and for.all.the info.

    I have found out this hone will but a razor edge on a sharpened pocketknife. I will try to post pics of stuff as soon as I can. And sorry for asking about the value. I didn't read that part in the rules. Thanks a bunch.
