    Default I really wish...

    ...i could figure out, what this hone is.
    I bought this hone out of the U.K. It is dark green, with tiny blue micro dots thoughout the stone...looks like someone took a needle, dipped it in blue ink and dotted away. Possibly some kind of welch, green slate?
    Lapping produces a milky slurry. It is a slow cutter, but behaves/performs like a finisher.

    The closeup, small photo, is the xhone.
    The other photo contains a charnley forest on the left, a dragons tongue in the center and the xhone on the right. Camera phones suck, but ive been spending all my money on stones. :-(

    You've got better eyes than I do! I can't tell much from the pic. I believe Mac said he has a TOS so he knows what they look like. I've owned two TOS and I've seen some others and none have been anything other than the light gray.

    I agree, clearer pics would help. My money is not on a TOS.

    the only hone I know of that has tiny blue dots is a TOS, they are clearer when the hone is wet as in these pics:
