Hey Scott - I definitely am getting something out of it ::tu:: ... Had a number of them for years to sharpen fillet knives, others for hooks... A few weeks back I bought a bag of sharpening stones of all kinds for $6 that included a Norton Stone in an original box at a yard sale!!

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.

So, here's one......
Every time (only been about a half dozen times) I place the blade on it it feels like it's going to slip right off the stone......very, very smooth.
Came out of a garage stacked and packed with hand tools....

I suspected this chunk was a sharpening stone/brick of some sort. ::shrug::
Any info would be appreciated.

Here's an old Case counter hone that you won't easily find, up for auction on eBay. Overpriced IMHO but if you want one here it is. http://www.ebay.com/itm/VINTAGE-W-R-CAS ... Swa-dWlWsF. Not my auction, I'm not bidding.

I realize this is a steel, not a stone, but it is cool. A Keen Kutter sharpening steel. The guard is in the shape of the KK wedge and bar emblem.

I'm all about the Lansky sharpening system (but you knew that from my handle ::tu:: ) - wore 2 sets out so far. Amazing piece of innovation - makes it so simple for even a novice to get a razor edge. I keep the base mount clamped to my drill press for easy access.

I have a bunch of oil and water stones I use for sharpening plane blades & chisels. For those blades, I use the Veritas "rollerskate" jig - works like a charm (typically I use various grits of emory cloth on piece of thick plate glass though ... aka the Scary Sharp method).

I'm not much of a freehand sharpener for any edged tools - I like getting a razors edge through technology ... but I do give you guys credit who can sharpen well by hand.

This thread was pointed out to me and I love it! I enjoy finding/collecting whetstones (a general term we use around here for any stone used to sharpen a pocket/fixed knife) almost as much as the knives themselves.
I have several I would like to show off,mthe first being this one.
I "found" it in a local pawn shop a couple of weeks ago. My investigation via the Internet revealed several from the "Pike Manufacturing" but no others with "Pike Sta, NH".
The whole rig weighs maybe two lbs#?
Pretty cool.

Here's an unusual old Robeson Sharp Stik I found a while back.

I just saw this post you made in December Scott.
I think that the a pumice stone used to clean large grills in restaurants.

They are used like a whet stone to remove the top layer of the steel grill to you are cooking on a new clean surface.
Some of them even have a handle that clamps on to them to hold them easier.
