Buying stones is always a topic which stone to buy. Actually there are a lot of vintage stones around, also many new stones have occurred in the honing scene within the last years (f.ex. Apache Strata, Apache Black Gila, Haida Gwaii Hone, Bavarian-Frankonian, Thuringian Bouts, Imperia La Roccia, Bethesda grey, Dota Creek and many more)
So which one to choose ? If you’re unsure either to go on Natural Stones or synthetic Stones I firstly will give the proposal to contact any of the mentioned people listed here on the ABOUT Site.
I’am quite sure that each of those people will be glad to help out on any question concerning honing or choosing the perfect stones. All of them are well known honers or either specialists on specific type of stones.
