    Homemade Hone

    Check it out guys. I made my own hone. The handle is one I just had lying around, and the hone is the ceramic filament from one of the giant light bulbs they are phasing out down in the machine shop at work. The little end cap is shipping protector from an autoclave fitting. The cool thing is that it works really well, as good as or better than any other hone I have used.

    That looks great and it seems pretty inventive. How fine is it?

    Your hone has a nicer handle than any of my knives!

    Just looking for something else to put a handle on?

    Any other handle projects in the works? You must have some of the finest looking kitchen tools around. What does your grill set look like?

    My BBQ set is pretty bad-ass. My wood collection and obsession with making handles has gotten pretty silly, and now I have officially run out of things to re-handle. I am going to try some western handles next or maybe a saya
