View Full Version : WTB: Set of Hones
03-04-2009, 02:48 PM
I know this is a bit of a long shot, but I would like to buy a complete set of Hones for my straight razors.
If anyone has got a setup they would like to sell, let me know.

Any ideas what you are after?

That's a question I was trying to avoid, Lol.
Norton 4K/8K with a Finishing stone. This is just one example.
Anything that's practical and will do the job. I recently purchased a Norton 4K/8K from the local classifieds; however, the seller had kindly forgotten to say that he had gouged a huge channel in it. I'm thinking of sending it back to him -- perhaps through his living room window :wink:, Lol.

That is really nice of him. Does he moonlight selling garbage on Ebay too? I have a (lapped, no box) Chinese 12K I'd part with. In the interest of full disclosure, it never really did anything for me. Cuts far too slow for my taste.

Lol, I don't know if he sells on eBay! Though I have had an offer by PM to give the guy a good kicking, Lol.
Do you have any pictures of the stone? If you send me a pm with the price, I may be interested!

Can you post pictures of the norton? Chances are it still can be useful.
I believe open_razor on ebay sells the smaller version of the chinese stone and since he's in Poland shipping may be better than from US.
Depending what kind of razors you'd be honing you may be able to get by with a coticule. I could sell you one of mine with a blue side on it too, but if you'd be doing ebay type of razors you would probably want something coarser for getting the chips out (actually this is true for the norton as well).
