    Hi Gabriel,
    Yellow/ Green color, considered the Holy Grail of the Thuringian stones. About the finest usable natural hone, and will improve a 12K+ edge. There are others, of course!
    Still, a polished finish on the bevel and a very smooth shave as is the forte of natural fine hones..
    Escher is the looked-for brand name of hones from Thuringia, Germany/Austria.

    Enjoy the journey!

    Any form of nagura can leave renegade particles on the base stone. You can greatly reduce the risk by using a light touch when slurrying up.
