    Default Sentence Error in Wiki

    I'm hoping that I'm placing this suggestion in the right area of the forums.
    I was perusing the Hones Comparison Table Wiki (in my quest to determine what my perfect finishing hone should be), since there are stones there I've never even heard of. I was reading the description of the Naniwa Super Stones, and found what seems to be a grammatical error. The third paragraph in, it says "These stones a very nice tactile feel when honing." I'm not an English major, but perhaps there needs to be another verb in there after the word "stones", such as "provide" or "produce".
    here's a link to the page:
    Hones - comparison table - Straight Razor Place Wiki
    I hope nobody thinks that this is a comment about being smug or anal; quite the contrary. It is very apparent that so much work has gone into the Wiki section about hones (let alone the entire Wiki itself), and I want to do my part to make it sound as professional as possible. I know a lot of people consider it the Bible of Straight Razor Shaving, and I know that I've referenced the Wiki countless times while learning how to shave. Thanks for taking this change into consideration, however slight and small it may be.

    I concur. Feel free to go add the verb you see fit by logging into the wiki and editing the page you linked; something like "have" should work fine too

    Did the edit. When I wrote that stuff I deliberately left the verb out to see if anyone would catch it. Thanks to Prussian for pointing that out.
    Be careful how you treat people on your way up, you may meet them again on your way back down.

    You left it out on purpose? Haha, well it looks like the jig is up!

    Only kidding.... I missed it and there may be other glitches in there too. Not for a lack of my proofreading though.

    Well, I'd be more than happy to comb through the Wiki to help find anything. Besides, it'd be a great way to learn more about shaving in the process!
