    Default My new coticule/bbw combo...WOW!!!

    hey guys,
    just wanted to quickly share my new coticule combo. I got it this morning and I am comletly amazed with everything about coticule stones. It is sooo smooth and put such a mirror polish edge on my razor I could not believe it. very fast too with the slurry. I got a slurry stone from classicedge and it raises such a nice creamy slurry so quickly!!! the stone measures 5" long by 2 1/4" wide. the coticule depth is kind of shallow at 8mm. but I think as long as I dont raise to much slurry all the time it should last me quite a while. wouldn't you think? The other side is not slate, it is apparently bbw that was glued to the coticule. it also raises slurry very well and cuts fast too. I am extatic about this stone. It is currently now my favourite finisher. I also posted a J-nat the other day that I got but it is nothing close to as good as this one IMHO. heres a few pics...any comments are more than welcome bye for now.

    That is a good looking Coticule, nice, smooth, even, looks to be a Select Grade with no real inclusions, should last you a lifetime at least, I use the heck outta my Coti and can see no real wear yet....

    NIce stone.. I have one but it is narrow, and I haven't been overly successful with it... I am trying to "learn" the stone. I like your's, it looks wide enough to support the blade. Good Honing!

    Looks like you did great! Hit the jackpot first time out.

    How was the shave?

    Depends how I feel that day!

    Most times I use the blue and then switch over to the yellow to finish

    That's a nice looking stone! That'd be fun to hone on.

    I'm struggling with a narrow one too - wish I'd gone for mod width and less length...

    a bit more muscle control is needed for narrow hones - i find.
