    Default Finally got a pierre la lune!

    I found this one on a glitched Ebay listing and I thought it would be fun to share. The listing wouldn't let international buyers bid and I had to dig through eBay to place a bid! The dimensions are 4.752.51. It has both the label and the stamp but the stamp is very faint and the label appears to be trying to peel so I'm going to seal both tomorrow!


    Also any information about the history of this Stone would be appreciated!!

    Use honing solution or oil, zero pressure and low lap count coming from your prefinisher. Strop a bit more than usual. These cut aggressively and are extremely fine.

    I have used sewing machine but you can do smith's or glycerine and water or even shaving lather like a barber hone. You should notice a very nice boost in smoothness and some added sharpness

    The purple one you can almost treat like a natural barber hone, the black one aka the special stone pretty much does sharp and smoothness is really tricky. I greatly prefer purple between the two. All of the french finishers represent amazing value atm given their capabilities with a practiced hand.

    Can you elaborate on "tricky", they both have F.G.B.C...you're saying they are not the same stone then? Thanks.... :-)

    The purple and black are quite different material apart from both cutting aggressively.

    Here is my special stone. It's branded extra fine faintly on the side.

    Extra fine stamped la lune

    The special stone is just more difficult material to use. It cuts even faster than the purple, I don't feel it has quite as much consistency. It's slightly more porous. Mind you, it's an ultra fine rock regardless, but I wouldn't recommend it over the purple ever.
