Yep, I dropped in on a local granite counter top guy and scored a sink cut out for the whopping price of zero dollars. The only draw back is that hunk of stone is massively heavy!

Trust me, you won't believe how much better they are.

Paul there is even diamond lapping paste available now at the high end woodworking stores and sites. Home&Lowes are clueless to fine and even better woodworking. One time I asked the "special order" guy if he could get me clear WRC (western red cedar) he said "whas dat?"

I have been thinking about getting a barber hone. I have an old antique straight razor I would like to put to use. But I think I need to send it out to get a really good clean edge to start with. Not many places I can find that will hone them any more.
