    Default Is this a Coticule?

    Hi All,

    I have one of my Dads old sharpening stones that he bought a long time ago. Unfortunately he is not around to tell me what it is, but due to it being attached to a wooden base, I am guessing it is not a coticule.

    But can anyone identify it.

    It does have some faint writing that I can just make out, which I think says ORAL Hones Inc. and other words below saying To The World!

    Regards,

    Matt

    Upon further investigation I think the wording is:

    Natural Hones Inc.

    Whetstone Supplier To The World!

    And guessing it could be a soft Arkansas?

    Looks like a soft arkie that buck knives and others sold. Some had washita on them but they are soft arkies. Nice looking stone! Still a good stone.

    Looks a bit like an old ark I had to let go a while back. It was labeled Washita.
