    Default Black glittery hone idenifacton help!

    I have this little black razor hone that I'm hoping to identify. It didn't pick up real well on camera but it has a silver glittery scheme to it. Any help would be much appreciated!

    Looks like slate to me. What is your location? Where did you find it?

    It came out of Britain. It feels a little on the gritty side but it hasent been lapped yet. It's definitely not a thuringian!

    Hopefully this information will help. Size 6 (1/8) x 1 (1/2) (2/8)-(3/8).

    Looks Scottish to me, but I've been wrong before!

    Is it hard to lap ?

    I've bought two norwegian raggstones from aj_1001 lately, and they came with the same look.

    Mine were quite hard.

    Although identifying a stone is interesting, what is really important is how it performs. How hard is the stone? How fast does it cut? Is it a bevel setter, a mid-range, or a finisher? How easily can you develop a slurry?

    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.
