Apache Black Gila finishing hone. Limited production of Black Gila hones due to rarity. Hone ID # BG0004
Personal notes about this hone:
– From the brown batch. There is only one stone producing these beautiful tiger-like Black Gila hones. I believe there will be about 8-10 hones that will be made from the brown batch stone.
– I hand-lapped this (a lot of time invested) to a useable flat state; though you can always lap more to suit your needs. If you do lap it more, you will have to use some diamond/oxide powder or a diamond plate.
– There are no pits or cracks. This specimen has a smooth, pristine honing face.
– There are natural edges.
– Expect high HHTs from this hone!
