    What it was used for was knives by last ovner. What it was made for I have no idea. Pics will be when I get home and there is some decent light left. So far work long hours or there is rain. I do not want to take pictures in bad light as then you can not see interesting pattern on it.

    This'd be a great hone to go with that 17" $16,000 razor that was in a thread a couple of weeks ago.

    There are lengths of sandpaper used on belt sanders, 4 x 36, 6 x 48 , 24 x75 for the big "Time Saver" commercial sanders. I would get one of the big belts and cut it so that it is all one long strip. Then I would use WD40 as a lubricant so that the binder in the belt would not dissolve.

    Hope this helps,

    I have some that go to 500 grit. FWIW, try trugrit.com and see what they have available. IIRC they will cut to order.

    Cant see that such a big stone would be that useful TBH, might be better to have it cut down to 5 8X3's

    I actually agree that it would be more useful cut down...and much easier to lap the smaller ones. I've never had a need for any hone to be wider than 3" & many of my naturals are in the 2" +/- range.
