    It's a tad under 7/8, so I'm probably looking at around 13/16 by the time I get that small chip in the middle out.

    Started my weekend a little early and made a little road trip to meet someone who was selling a box of sharpening stones for really cheap, I mean Cha-eeep.

    Made a stop on the way at my favorite hardwood dealer. They stock tons of different woods, including exotics.

    What I like is they have a "shorts" bin and also they are willing to cut 1 board foot off any piece 8 foot long and over.

    I ended up with a piece of lacewood, a piece of marblewood, and a couple 2x2x12 pieces of wenge that they had on the counter in the office. Nice folks there! Gonna make some scales and perhaps a couple brushes.

    Then I went to pick up the stones. I wasn't sure what was in the box exactly but I did see a couple pictures beforehand, but nothing close up. I was happy to find a coticule in there and a couple others that look very promising. Looking forward to cleaning them up and seeing what I have.

    Awesome score! What're the dimensions of the coticule and that mounted one? Always intrigues when someone thakes the time to do that...

    The long stone on the left looks promising.

    I plan on doing this little trick with a Wenge brush in the future. If you ever want to try something cool with yours, give it a try.

    Nice stones, and cool vid on bleaching Andrew.
    I'm hoping that one in the box cleans up to be a charnley forest for you G.
    A beautiful slow finisher. The one I have is packaged such that I'm hopeful for you buddy..
    As a rule of thumb I have found they tended to box up the nicer stones back in the day. Hell, some of us still do.
