277994 Tony Seo 2023‑11‑27 18th Century Razor Hone
Howdy

One of the items that I found up at Madison-Bouckville this past summer 
was a coffin shaped stone for an 18th Century razor hone. I knew that I 
had sold one in the past, but the picture had gotten lost somewhere 
along the line.

But thanks to Facebook and it's daily memories, I found where I had 
posted it many years back and snagged a copy so I would have it.

This is what an original looks like with the wooden handle.

I still have that stone (from this summer), I ain't decided what I will 
be doing with it just yet....

Tony (were winter temps and ugly weather have made the flea markets 
pretty bad of late...)

Great looking stone. Is it a coticule or something more along the lines of
translucent Arkansas or something else entirely?

I really can't say,  it's gotta be at least 18 years since I had that guy.

Here is the one that I got in New York

It is on the hard side, might be on the coticule side, or something like
a very hard slate like material (I've had slate stones in the past as
well, not as early as these were though)

Tony (just anudder day here..)
