    Be a bit careful with ivory scales. They are thin and flex easily but can be on the brittle side.

    Yes, and they very commonly get cracks lengthwise at the wedge end from the tip to the other side of the pin but usually not the whole way.

    It is a 7 day set by Mappin & Webb.

    For the right amount of money, you can have them, Steve. But be ready to dive deep into your wallet.

    Is that the set I saw on eBay a while back? That was a beautiful set. If so I'm glad you got them. My piggy bank was a bit low at the time.

    No. I did some wheeling and dealing with an old member on this site. He is no longer around.

    Back on topic...
    I recently found a tiny tin cup that is perfect for soaking my brush. I only soak for a minute or two so it holds the hot water just long enough.

    Not sure if ebay counts on this thread but I just snaffled these for $20 Aus. Top stone is a 250x60 naturally bonded coti . (Dunno about the other).

    After cleaning it up a bit we had to go into town and I popped my head into my favourite salvage / second hand tool shop. Came away with a few grubby old stones, which turned out to be a Washita, Hindo, Turkish, and this...

    I've never found anything like this out there. But that's okay. I wouldn't know what they were anyway!
