    Question What stone could this be?

    I was wondering if any of you could tell me what kind of stone this was. I have been trying to flatten it, but seems to be a hard job. It just keeps eating away the sandpapers... It does not seem to get enough of p200, 320 and 400.
    Is it worth flattening at all? I did not plan to use it on razors, rather on knives, but I am sure you know better!

    Oops...
    Are they any good? It seems pretty smooth. Or shall I just put it away, and keep in a drawer as a "relic"?

    I donít think it would be useful for razors, too coarse.
    If it had been an oilstone then it could be used for getting small chips out before using a finer water stone

    I think I am gonna use it to sharpen the kitchen knives, and look for some decent water stone to sharpen my razor - e. g. Norton 4k/8k.
    Thanks for your advice!
