RE: Honing stone for Sakura MN-72 knife sharpener

From:"Monson, Frederick C."

Hi Marilyn,
	I don't know how special that honing stone of yours was, but
searching "honing stone" on Google produced a large number of hits.  One
was:  You could hone on a cheap,
thick glass plate with the proper grade of suspended grit.  Looking will do
it for you I bet, and you might do better than with an old stone that would
require some redressing with another stone that you would probably have to
look for.


Fred Monson, 

who started sharpening my hatchet with an 18" circular stone that I ran with
a foot pedal.  Grandpa saved everything, a genetic trait I apparently
inherited, though I didn't get the wheel.
