Looking for old soft brick handmade in Hawaii
 
Aloha,
I need to repair the front stoop of our house, which was built in 1969 using old bricks at the time. They are baked, soft bricks, 4" x 8" x 2" high. I need at least 12. Does anyone know where I can find such bricks?
Thank you!

Why would you want more of something that's to soft to be used for steps?

It's been fine for 40 years, but some of the bricks have been degraded by water sitting on them. If it had been sealed, it wouldn't have happened. They are beautiful and vintage handmade bricks that are a period piece and add to the look and perhaps value of the house to certain people. Mahalo.
