    I put the same type of handle on a Gillette Old Type head. The extra weight and size made a big difference for the better.

    Haha. No. There are 2 of them. The place I got the stones and pressure gages from was a serious hoarder. He had 20 pressure gages I kid you not. Absolute tonnage of stuff. I could have spent all day looking at his tools and stuff.

    A portmanteau of "stropped" and "honed". I believe the advertisements of the time mentioned something like stropped on 45 feet of leather.

    I'll be the first to admit I had to consult the dictionary.

    Picked up a usb microscope. I'm going to be able to get a better look at my honing progress. I was having a hard time with the loupe and was afraid of cutting my nose off while studying edges. It was $35 on Amazon and I have a gift card burning a hole in my pocket. [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    I tried to look it up and it kept changing the spelling to "stoned". But for 66 cents you can't go wrong. ANyway no idea...
