    This came to me from one of my local pickers last weekend. He got into a estate of a barber and offered me a few things in a lot including this. This is the Mother of all Barber Hones. This is the Uber Rare and Gargantuan Sized Norton razor Hone. This is the salesman sample used by the reps to give honing demonstrations to sell the smaller, standard sized Norton Razor Hone. It measures a massive 12 x 4 inches. I have only seen a few pictures of this hone over the years and never thought I would acquire one. Not many left in existence. My jaw dropped when I saw it. It is a touch dirty but in great condition. It does have a few chips and divots around the perimeter, but working surfaces are near perfect. No funky sick hone syndrome
