    Completely ruined my stone.

    So I told the guys at work they're not allowed to use my stones. If they want a good stone, they can buy one themselves. I've already caught one of them using my Sigma 6000. He went into my tool locker when I wasn't looking and grabbed it without asking. He did it again today and now he has completely ruined it. He made several long scratches in it running almost 5mm deep. I don't know what worse, the fact he took it without asking it or that he's so mind numbingly dumb he didn't stop after making the first deep scratch. Anyway, I went to my employer and told him what the idiot had done. My employer calls him in tells him to buy me a new stone or he's fired. If there's one thing my employer can't stand it's using someone else's tools without asking. I'm pretty sure he won't be doing it again

    Nice that your boss backed you up! Sounds like you need a lock.

    You're right, I need a lock. I've never needed one until he started at the company 5 weeks ago. And I'm so glad he didn't take one of my coticules. If he had ruined one of them I would've kicked his ass.

    Holy f**k, what the hell was he doing to the stone to make such a deep scratch? I bet he has no clue how a high grit stone is meant to be used. Can this mouth breather even be trusted with an edged instrument?

    I truly have no idea. He said he was just sharpening and the edge bit into the stone a couple of times. He's lucky he wasn't fired on the spot because he's still in his trial period.

    What a dick! Put the knife through his hand next time he touches your **** and he'll not do that again.

    I use chisels as a carpenter, not knives

    Maybe someone thought a stone worked like a pull through sharpener...

    You know what? Make him flatten it, then allow him to use it again
