    I've learned I don't need anything more than a good Thurigan, or Escher, to enjoy a blissful shave.
    JNats...no thanks.! I've shaved for years off one stone, and of less quality than what I have now. Its all in your techniques.
    The stone doesn't make the edge, compared to the hand doing the honing.

    I plan on getting a thuri in the future but will hold off till next year. Going to learn this one first. I thought about bigger but then Outback reminded me about the warped or wonky blades. Too wide of a stone causes the need to rock the blade so i went with 2 inch. Thanks Mike for pointing that out.

    Nice! Good luck in your Coticule endeavors!

    I can't tell for sure, but it looks it has a grainy/woodsy type surface?

    I for one favor those type of Coticules, they always give me very smooth edges

    If you can post a close-up pictures of the surface and a picture os the side, a layer determination might be possible to do by people more knowledgable than me

    Found a full bottle of Yardley Citrus Wood EdT at the Salvation Army Store for $5.00. Worth a shot at that price and it turns out to have a pleasing scent.

    Oh...beautifull coti.
    That's a La Grise form the Ol'Preu quary.

    Should be
    Medium hard or a bit on the soft side....
    Moderatly fast on slurry.
    Slow on water only.
    Provide a realy nice and mellow edge if finished with light strokes under running water.

    Enjoy it lovely stone to get into coticules!

    Going from learning a coticule to learning a thuringian is like falling off a log, at least in my experience. good luck!

    Close-ups as best as my phone can do. Then cropped with computer program. I'm pretty proud of myself learning how to crop in the last month. LOL.

    Looks like I will be breaking out the Coti tomorrow. Spent too many hours working on CB Radios today. Now my back hurts and its time for some aspirin and beer. Maybe a shot or two to make it go down better. Or should I say to make me go down better.
