    On the rare occasion that I lap my coticule, I usually use 360/400 grit wet and dry on a flat surface. First I use it dry, as I feel it's a bit faster dry than wet; followed by a few wet laps, so that the slurry polishes the surface out a bit.

    That or I use the dry-lapped surface to set a bevel on a razor with medium/heavy slurry, which pretty much has the same effect.

    Here's a question to the Coticule Clan

    I have no doubt that what the supplier says he is selling you is what you receive but is there any other method to tell what vein you are receiving? Does one accept or is there any other method?

    It's a pretty subjective thing once it's in the hand of the end consumer. There are folks out there (who are not me) that can ID a coticule vein with great confidence just with a few good pictures. But even still, it's a natural stone and there's ALWAYS a chance of mistaken identity. A visual and a chance to hone on the stone make for an even better guess as to the vein in most cases. Of course, it's my opinion that people get too caught up in the veins... as I did starting out.
    All that said, your coticule is an LV without much question. And a very nice looking one at that!!!
