Primo Barber Hone

This is what I call a Phenolic type of Barber Hone. I don’t know if they are phenolic in any way, but they do remind me a little bit of Bakelite items from long ago. 

This one is called the ‘Primo’ – it’s lapped and I put a coat of oil on it once. I’ll probably do that a few more times; the mineral oil soaked in pretty quickly so I think it needs some more conditioning. Even so, it worked very well and I was able to get a barely shaving edge to shave well with 6 strokes on lather followed by a good stropping session.

This is a ‘better than average’ Barber Hone – while it’s not as fine as a Frictionite 00, it’s still a good serviceable stone that can put a tugging edge back into the game quickly.

The original box is worn, but still in good condition and quite serviceable. The inside of the lid is printed with directions on how to use the stone.
