    Looks like a hindostan. Can you take a pic of the sides

    Yeh i was thinking it may have been one from the sellers discription if it but its way to soft and easy to lap i have a few charnleys and they are hard . Also the swirls are more pink than the red of a charnley.

    Ok i have some more pics and have had a chance to run an old razor over it polishes the blade nicely ,doesn't auto slurry and the the water doesn't turn grey with steel so it should be a nice finisher .I have used a hard rub stone to get a slurry and it is milky white so im leaning towards a hybrid coticule stone old and hard enough to not need a backing stone , maybe sort of like the Les Latineuses . Any opinions welcome Name:  20170813_101607.jpg

    Aquire more ,sometimes the cheep dirty old stones turn out to be the best surprises,not always but sometimes. Otherwise take two panadol and see your doctor if pain persists.
