It will be really hard to put to words the incredible trip I had to buy stone at Madras. I spent more for stone than I have ever spent before in a single trip at a total of $6,782. Fortunately a big part of the stone buys were funded by knives I sold to buyers at the show with 16 knives sold. Here is what that money was spent on and it sure does not look like much in the photo. One five gallon bucket and the big piece under the other arm would have been enough to move it all into the shop in one trip from the van.
