I'm looking for a good sharpening stone and would appreciate all recommendations. I'm relatively new to knives so i just need a good beginner stone.

Thanks

Do you need one small enough to pocket/pack - or a larger bench stone? 

For full size, dedicated sharpening - I really like my 8x2.5 combination soft/hard arkansas stone from Dan's whetstone company. That plus a strop loaded with green bark river compound serve 90% of my sharpening needs.

The Barbershop

It's just seems natural that Art of Manliness should have a barbershop group.  My intent of this group is to gather and share general thoughts and experiences concerning barbershops. Anything from a good barbershop that you have found  to pictures and stories of shops you have visited to discussing anything barbershop.  See More
