    Looks, to me, like a Norton India Oilstone combo.

    The side view looks like an oil filled two sided Carborundum in relatively good condition. A good hone for knives

    I have a similar hone that I use for my pocketknives. I did try it on a razor...it will set a bevel and do it quick. You will lose a lot of metal. Mine is too much of a brute for razors.

    Looks like a coarse/fine man-made oilstone to me.

    I have a small stone like that and the fine surface is very hard like you describe - not too unusual when you consider how hard some barber's hones are, being another example of a synthetic stone.

    Regards,
    Neil
