    Default Little Weirdo

    This little weirdo arrived in the mail today.



    it feels like a harder thuringian
    it has microscopically small pyrite inclusions
    it smells clayish
    and a drop of water leaves a darker spot on it than water freshly applied.

    Actually I'd say it is a little Thuringian, if not for the color.
    Here it is in the midst of his family. Do you think he'd fit in?



    What else could he be?

    Olivia there are 3 stones in the first picture, which one are we talking about.

    I'm not sure, Olivia, but shame on you for showing me a picture of all those stones and igniting my HAD!!!

    Excuse me, Chris!

    The upper picture is all one hone.
    Dry, just a bit lapped,
    back side
    and wet front side

    My apologies, I did't have my glasses on and it looked like 1 picture with 3 stones. Have you tried using it yet?

    not seriously....
    I've did some strokes on it with a very hard Wüsthof that remained unimpressed.
    Yet have to dig out for a honed blade that is a bit softer and see what it does on a polished surface.

    I thought it was three different hones in the first pic too. So which one is it in the next pics? The third from the left?

    yes, the third, Dylan!
    Have't seen a Thuringian of that color in any of the other threads about them.
