    Default Hard Coti + Soft Slurry stone, solution?

    Hi

    I recently received a nice Combo La Veinette + BBW from the mine. I did a small touch up to my henckel upon reception it was great.

    For the last 2 days Im trying to hone a Dovo from scratch, and cant for the life of it get it sharp enough. It does shave, but not what I usually get.

    Today I noticed that the slurry stone is almost 2/3 of its original size (in 2 days). It seems, I have been honing with the abrading power of the slurry stone only. The main hone is like ceramic, and does not show any ware at all. When trying the BBW I do get dark slurry.

    Can it be the slurry stone is too soft?
    Would a nagura stone be a good solution?

    thanks for your time.

    What slurry stone did you got ? Did you got a slurry for both types ? Coti Slurry + BBW Slurry ? Actually on thr coti the slurry stone should be softer, its the usual preference that slurry gets used and not the base stone....

    I would use a nagura on a Jnat, i know that mixing up different types of stones with different slurry stones works...i dont like to mix it up...but its on you playing the fun game to try out!

    The stone I got from Ardennes, with the main stone.

    I have a le Grise I bought a few years back with its own slurry stone, It took me years to manage to go thru the slurry stone to the same degree I did on this one in 2 days. I have been honing on coticule for almost 8 years, so I usually know what to expect. I will try with the older stone, but if this hone goes thru the slurry stone this fast, I need another solution.

    It's not that your base stone is going through the slurry stone any faster. You've just stumbled across a very soft slurry stone. You can try doing fewer passes to build up your slurry, or pick up a different coticule slurry stone to create your slurry with and hope this one is harder.

    Yes that will work. Most of the time I use the small course DMT to raise slurry on my coticule.
