I have a pair of CRKT knives, a Heiho and a Hissatsu both assisted opening folders. My current use sharpening stone is an old school Behr-Manning/Norton IB7 oilstone that does a very good job of keeping my edges ready to go. What I'm looking for is a good quality stone holder. I found one I liked but it's specifically for 6"X2" stones and my stone is 7"X2" and I'm not finding anything that's non-adjustable to fit this size. Adjustable is not a show stopper, I just know that I don't know good from bad in an adjustable. Any suggestions on a good holder would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Yup. Already done. 2X4 with plastic fencing material surrounding the perimeter of my stone. Cut 4 rubber feet to screw in so I don't always need to have it mounted in my vise. Saved a bit of money this way and it's totally functional.

Nicely improvised.

You have given me an idea...

Would be easily done with a nice chunk of red oak, a router, a chisel,  and some closed cell foam (to tighten up the "socket" in the wood so the stone is a near press fit without potentially breaking the stone.

I'll talk my son into getting busy on that. I don't have the patience to work on wood. I like metal. Its easier.

------------------------------------- "A True Warrior knows neither Left or Right"  Looking for a doc who can fix my allergies.. Stupid People and IED's...

Im not a wood guy either, I've worked in and around machine shops for 35 years, but I make do with what little wood skill I have. Much like any project, measure twice, cut once. I started out a while back with chisel and hammer.  The result while modestly functional was aesthetically a steaming turd. And I don't  have a router. This while still a little on the ugly side,  with a little dremel and sandpaper work will clean up nicely and it is totally functional as is. There is less than 1/16" slop/play between any edge of the stone and the surrounding plastic

Not quite a press fit but also not so much slop that my stone will move to any large extent while running my edge along its length.

I just finished up screwing in my rubber feet so it's benchtop useable now and not restricted to being mounted in the vice. I like it so far. It is a work in progress and as long as I go slowly I probably/hopefully won't bunge it up. 

When your son has something useable for you let us see how it turns out.

Used this set up to sharpen all my kitchen knives. The rubber feet worked perfectly on my counter top. Only cut myself once so a successful venture.
