Take one or take them all. If you want them all I will do $100 shipped. I got these stones from a straight razor guy on e-bay, so they have seen very little use/wear. Sizes are mfg claims or approximations, I just measured with a ruler. Odds are these are all metric so the actual size will vary a little. Shipping will run $5-8 per stone, or $10-13 for a pair depending on how far you are from me. Pickup is always welcome if you are local.

I tried out the Natural stones out of curiosity and found them to work very well with each other. I have no Japanese tools and no real need for an additional set of honing stones. These would be an excellent compliment to some Japanese chisels.

I’m not looking to buy these but am curious if they’ve sold.
