    Did you ask the seller for more info ? I bought a nice DD Satinedge from that seller. I think he will be honest with you. If he knows anything more he'll tell you. It looks man made to me but I am not a hone expert at all.

    Looks like a Coticule to me....

    I'm not sure about the other side. I can't tell if it's BBW or slate.
    If you get it, and the blue side raises purple slurry, It's a bbw.

    If it's more black looking, then it's slate...

    I have 3 responses, and couldn't decide which to use. So I'm leaving you with all three.

    1: I think it's a coticule. And I think if you want it, you better bring your A game...

    2: Honestly since you posted it here, I probably won't bid.

    3: No way man, that's one of them India stones..totally useless for razors..Don't waste your time.

    I'd bet it's a coticule glued to a bbw.

    My money is on Coticule/BBW.
    But, that is no guarantee that it is a finishing grade. I now have about 14 Coticules. I have encountered 4 that were not finishing grade and only one that was both really hard and fine grit ( It is actually shiny). The last one I purchased was soft and about a 6K grit.

    Good luck
