    Default Any thoughts on the new "La Lune"?

    The reintroduced La Lune's have been out for awhile but I haven't seen any mention... I was curious if anyone got their hands on one and had any thoughts.

    HAD is a b****. Still regretting not ordering an Apache Strata when I had the chance...

    I notice they are available in North America from Griffiths Shaving Goods.

    I am seriously trying to combat my HAD.

    I’m also incredibly curious about these stones.

    Gosh darn it, somebody buy one already!



    I will probably get one mid to late June, after I arrive in Japan.

    Do you remember stroking my HAD a few days ago David?

    I think you should buy a La Lune, you need one. How can you even sleep knowing that you can't hone properly without one.

    Go on , buy one, buy one, you need one, buy one

    Just to put all rumours to rest, I did not stroke or touch Steve’s HAD in any way.

    I have enough trouble managing my own.

    Default "La Lune," just delivered

    Hi. I'm Paul, and I have H.A.D.

    I ordered a "La Lune" stone from the website (www.1stone.fr/categorie-produit/pierres-1stone/)
    on April 12th.

    It was shipped from France (via La Poste Francais) on April 14th.

    It arrived here today (May 1st), via USPS, all in good order.

    The color of the stone in the photos is not quite true. It has a purplish hue, and very much
    resembles a 3-line Swatty. The working surface is very smooth, but there are some very faint
    saw marks. It feels perfectly smooth, but it could perhaps use a bit of burnishing...or maybe
    just a bit of use.

    We'll see how it hones.

    Question: What should I use to seal the trademark emblem?

    Nice looking stone. Some of the links don't seem to work for me ???? Just thought I'd let you know.

    By the way, I can't remember who it was who said: "If it's Alcoholics Anonymous, why is it that the first thing they want you to do is to say your name"?
