I just finished up honing a Genco "Fluid Steel" and it was a bit of a success for me so I thought I would share about it here. This was a flea market razor and it had a flea market edge to begin with. I have been learning, practicing and familiarizing myself with several different coticules since the middle of last summer. Here I wanted to just set a bevel with a 1k and then use only the coticule with the "dilucot" method after that.
I've had some success with this method before before but it just felt great to nail it on the first try here. I had a couple days growth so I just did a test shave and it was oh so very nice. Something about just using one little stone to get a great shaving edge is so satisfying. And it had that wonderful coti feel where the edge knows the difference between skin and beard. My 2 cents about coticules is that they are worth every bit of the learning curve.
Vintage natural combo coticule with a "new" slurry stone along side the Genco.

[QUOTE=aaron1234;1693745]I'm finally testing these stones!!!!
The second one (random purple rock???) is VERY FINE....finer than my thuringians But rather slow.
Congratulations thank you for sharing, I am quite familiar with this stone. I use mine as a final finisher with oil only on the finest steel. Most razors can not be pushed this far.
It took 3 days to remove the factory grind marks off the edge of my new EDC. Barber hones were used "dry" to polish the mirrored edge you see. Much better.
A very sharp single edge similar to a Kiridashi.
And my other EDC. Both are carried and are one hand flippers. Mike

It is what some refer to as a Vosgienne hone quarried in France. Most were cut on gang saws that could exhibit the same pattern. There are different grades.
Used as final finisher. After the finest stone you have, Barber delight, Nakayama, GMN200 etc.
A couple drops of Honing oil, Smiths or Glycerin mix all good. On the finest steel "Good razors" make 12 to 20 passes, check edge. Hope this helps some. Mike

No big deal, but my 1st hone of the year, Simple tightening of the pivot and 1k Naniwa on a nice Lauterjung Tiger which has languished many decades.

That's very interesting. the green stone was sold to me under the name of vosgienne. Both of these stones act completely different.
Stones can take on a life of themselves, I am almost sure I have seen your stone. If not your's one identical. Like all naturals, it could be the same region or mine for that matter. But different characteristics. That a good thing.
Here's an old shot of a CF used w/ oil on a Wusthof Stain- More or Less steel. Other types of oil can be used as well,
