Tam O' Shanter at Work

Tam O’ Shanter Barber Hone 

This Tam O’ Shanter hone seems to have been cut for use with Razors. It’s a bit slow and it cuts gently. I think this might be why people have said these stones are good for razors that microchip. I’m not convinced that’s an accurate call but it does seem plausible. I’ve not had that issue to deal with so I’m neutral on the subject. What I can say for certain is that this stone here gives excellent feedback and a very nice upper-mid-range polish.  The slurry stone is a cut down piece of a smaller Tam O’ Shanter stone, and a notably lighter in color.
