    Of course, the most important question is: What kind of edge does it leave on your razor: If it does what you want it to do, it really does not matter what kind of stone it is or where it came from.

    Lap the stone until you get a flat, smooth surface and see what it will do with it. Then come back with the results.
    So I have finally gotten the chance to mess with it on a few levels. I would personally label it as a pre finisher and it cuts rather fast. I was really hoping for it to be a la lune but Thanks to some of the other post I'm very inclined to say it is a dragon's tongue. Thank you all for the help!!!

    Quick question from a newbee. What would be used to lap a stone like that?

    You have loads of options.

    Loose grit on float glass.

    Wet and dry paper on a flat surface.

    A lapping plate or diamond lapping plate.

    A large flat diamond file/hone like the DMT 8C.

    Wet and dry paper on a flat plate/glass is the cheapest option. And it works well. The others are all upgrades to that.
