Bear Creek Oil Stone Sharpening Stone *SOLD*
A vintage oilstone or waterstone sharpening stone.
In its original wooden box with the remains of the trade label.
It has taken us a while to work out what is on the label but we are now 99% sure it reads 'BEAR CREEK'.
The last image shows what we believe to be a more complete version of the same label.
The only doubt we have is that there are also vintage NORTON/PIKE stones known as Queer Creek or Clear Creek, a type of sandstone.
Green-grey in colour.
This stone measures 7 inches (177mm) by 2" (51mm) by 15/16" (23mm) overall.
It weighs 1lb 11/4 ounces or 490g.
The top surface is reasonably flat and smooth with a minor depressions to the long outside edges, please see images.
The original wooden box measures 75/8" by 25/8" by 17/16" (194x167 x 37mm) overall.
