ID:	66071[Arkansas white whetstone. a/k/a Ouchita, Washita or novaculite. Very famous sharpening stones. Many consider the best. This bench size stone is 8"X2"X1" and is new, never used. This white is classified as 'fine' although color means nothing with respect to grade.
    Price is 50% of retail plus shipping, which is included. Will send priority USPS. I have four of these available. I have other sizes and grades available also which I'll list later. Interested in others, write me. My supply is small, I am not in the stone business, I inherited these. All are new.

    It seems to me that the whole premise of "Political Correctness," however well-intentioned it may be, runs the danger of uniform mediocrity becoming the norm.

    Think that would be helpful? Actually it is a c&p from another site where price is listed separately. Oh, well.
    Price is $18.00 which includes priority shipping. I take Pay Pal, my account is: Rifleman1776@suddenlink.net

    IMHO Frank, that is a darn good price.
    If you're not part of the solution, you're part of the precipitate.

    Thanks. Sometimes one wonders if he should have charged more. Retail for these is $26.00, I charged $13.00 plus shipping. I also posted on other forums (not wood working) and the four I have sold out in minutes.

    Frank,

    I would really like to have one of these stones if you still have any available. I'll PM you as well. Wish I saw this sooner-I don't get to this site everyday.
