    Default what hone is this ?

    hi guys,

    i found this stone few weeks earlier. i thought it was a "la lune" but when i looked to other side there is some brown spot. i don't think it is saturat because nothing shiny on the stone.


    would you have any idea what it can be and it's grit approximately?

    Really hard to tell from the pics ,give it a lap and clean up and it should make it easier also do you think it's a natural stone or man made? I have a guess at a tamO'shanter or scotch hone.

    looks a lot like the Welch slate i had. only way to tell the grit is to lap and possibly burnish it.

    Yeh well it's not a tam that's for sure. Looks like a nice fine stone other than that still really can't tell much about it ,in some pics it looks brownish and others its greenish lap it and see how hard it is ,what colour the slurry is does it have a smell ,other than oil that is.You just need a good sized square flat tile and some fine grit wet and dry sand paper ,draw a grid on it with pencil and wet it up and away you go keep sanding with the wet paper until all the pencil grid is gone and she should be pretty flat and clean and you will find out how hard it is and what the slurry looks like. Sadly we may still not be able to tell you what it is but she will be ready to use . Cheers.
