I will be returning the favor and sending my friend a razor with one of my edges on it once I get my stones in place which will be really fun. I do plan on adding more Arkansas oil stones to my collection here pretty soon. I'm just not sure when that will be just yet because I am in need of doing a couple of soap buying sprees to replenish my soap collection. I've kindly burned through it this year.
