Look at my original post to open this thread and you can see this stome after I cleaned it with Easy Off. On page 5 of this thread you posted a pic and my stone looks very similar if not the same....

Posted this in another thread but decided it belonged here.A Carborundum Duo Stone model 92. Two stones(one coarse;one fine) on a spring loaded rotating platform measuring 2" by 12";Bakelite housing and cover(cover has a large piece missing from it). Bottom was loaded with rancid lard oil(see original post for story). Got it all cleaned out and the stones cleaned off with brake cleaner and scuff pad.Works great and the price was right($15).

I agree, except that I think it is for double edge safety razors. I have one that is somewhat similar in design and the box says that.

Scott, I have certainly learned a thing or two on this thread. Some very interesting stuff here.

Scott - I have a beard but I keep my neck shaved. When I look at that safety razor stone I feel a profound gratitude that I can buy bag of disposable razors! When I was young I used safety razors to shave (no beard then), but even then I just tossed the dull ones instead of sharpening them. In fact, I never knew that special sharpening stones were made for the blades I used. I bet my father did not know that either, or else he would have had one.

I have been picking up a few too Scott.
These two are ones I got at estate sales the last couple weeks.
The Yankee Clipper has the cardboard sleeve that slides over it. Love the graphic on it.
The Yankee Clipper is 6-1/2" X 1-3/4". I paid $4 for it. I think the price was that high just for the sleeve.
The Carboloy is 4-1/4" X 3/4".
