Stoning my life away

Trying to clean up this Asian beauty to engrave it on theme of the Art of War by Sun Tzu

Lots of nastieness forming the stones down to the contours of the slide in 320,400 and 600 grit

I'd love to have my SS S&W Walther engraved about 50%, what kind of change are we talking. Germanic oak leaves.

Back in the 70ís one of the patrons of the gun shop where I worked brought in some stones very similar to those shown by pilkguns. They were from an auto glass factory where our friend worked. They seemed to be in a couple different grits. No one made any use of them until I started polishing and blueing.

They were marvelous tools and I made great use of them ... to the point that today only a few shards are left. Great to see similar stones in use again!

Hope you keep us posted on the project ...

Before the picture loaded I assumed it would be the Chinese copy of the Olympia. Do you oil your stones or leave them dry ?

I donít know how you could use them more than a few strokes dry. Iím using mineral oil just because I have a bottle of it handy. It really should be a thinner viscosity but works.

Spit works too but that will rust when it dries.

Pilk', your thread title gave me pause. A buddy's brother in law has a similar issue in a different context.


Intrigued by the Chinese pistol; how is fit and function? Any notion how the stainless parts work together? (galling, etc)?
