Hello, I've been a sharpening stone enthusiast for a long time. Which obviously led me to this forum. Which I have often read. I do enjoy knives too but atleast currently prefer rocks! Nicer knives often mean less sharpening, which for some Is a positive but for me a negative!

Thank you.

Thank you. Both are translucent arkansas stones as kingshapton mentioned. The brown/butter one was completely covered in old oil swarf dirt and needed to be cleaned. The white yellow was pristine and sold as a "Japanese waterstone" haha

My favorite finishers for both knives and straight razors are hard arkansas stones.

WAIT! I think I've seen those stones before...

Welcome mate. See you over on the Washita thread (which is where all the cool people hang out, obviously ;)).

Haha, Hellooo, I actually made an account to post over there.

The brown/butter one, I know the name butterscotch for stones of this type, but I'm not sure if the name is correct or widespread...

Arks are great stones! And lovers of these stones are always welcome.
