    Exclamation Narrow Chinese hones in OZ

    For you Aussies out there.
    Went to Carba-Tec yesterday to get a Chinese polishing stone for a fellow member and lo and behold they had skinny ones in stock that were not advertised on their website. I haven't seen this size before so I'm assuming they're relatively new

    The code is WSN-1 and they're only AU$15

    They're about 8"x2"x1" and if you like narrower hones these are a bargain.

    The DE blade in pic gives an idea for size.

    Great find!! And for only $15 AUD??? That's just over $11 CAD, and even less is USD!!! That's crazy! Definitely worth the money, and a great looking stone at that. Congratz

    G'day Marcus. I wasn't hunting for others but got my King stones there some time back & the 4k & 6 K are around 2" wide.

    The higher grits are wider.

    They had the 6k, maybe 4k and 8k king stones at a specials table last time i was at the sydney shop a couple of weeks ago, prices were around $40 for 6k and 4k and can't quite remember the 8k price.
    but i think it worked out cheaper for me to get the norton 4k/8k from lie nielsen.

    The King 8K is AUD$149 which is the same price as the Norton 8K at Nielsens.
    The Norton 4/8 combo is definitely cheaper & a better buy but I'd consider a small Belgian Blue & a Coticule as another option..
    I think the Ardennes dealer had some discounted in the classifieds for SRP members.
