    Yesterday's honing, R. Bouyges, Albi (France), 6/8, on 'La Nouvelle Veine' coticule, standard dilucot followed by lots of linen (and leather), excellent!

    + family photo (my coticules):

    - top row from left: 'La Verte' x 2 (glued to slate); 'La Nouvelle Veine' (natural combo with BBW); 'Les Latneuses' hybrid (2mm of yellow coticule on the other side) - all from Ardennes Coticule.

    - bottom row from left; glued to La Lorraine; natural combo with BBW; glued to BBW; glued to BBW - all ye olde stones from flea markets or trades.

    Very happy with them except for Les Latneuses and the orange bout where I feel I haven't yet really cracked the code....(surely my fault, not the stones!)

    Never tried a coticule but they look desirable
    Nice collection.

    Thanks, do you (like me) also enjoy sudoku, crosswords, chess, self-inflicted problem-solving generally? If yes, the coticule is your stone!

    There's a definite finesse about Coties, every one of um is a bit different IMO

    After few razors with average results I hit a home run yesterday. Friodur 72 1/2, bevel set on 1K Chosera followed by Ohira suita. Then koma and 2 tomos on this nakayama habutae I got from So few months back. The stone when dry is almost white. Has some nashiji on one end. Shave was very close and comfortable. ATG on my neck was a piece of cake and zero burn with alum and alcohol aftershave.

    Dalmore blue, was used on the Joseph Rodgers, straight after the Chosera 1k, I do like my naturals, even though I have bought quite a few Synthetics lately.

    Nice Dalmore blue Alpha444, I always switch to naturals after a synthetic bevel set to repair and harden the edge for a natural progression. Here is a famous STEP razor on a tamed toxic J-nat which means it contains filaments. It can finish the edge or destroy it if not careful.
