  1. All of these are in my "private collection" and i'd rather not part with them - but embarrassingly enough, I have so many hones, it's been months since i've touched these, and didn't even notice I had them in a box in the back of a closet! No stones come with slurry stones, as I don't use them (I think they're unnecessary).

    #1 - 8X3 monster natural combo coticule (yellow on one side, blue on the other) lapped on both sides and ready to use, good coloring, easy to use stone - $255. SOLD (Great deal)

    Blue side (While it looks like it has gouges in it, it's totally smooth, just has a gorgeous pattern)...

    #2 - Uncommon Green coticule. This is a very neat/interesting stone, as it looks like a bunch of stones fused together. It has very unique characteristics, in that it cuts MUCH slower than other coticules and requires significantly more strokes (3-4X) however it leaves a much finer, smoother edge more akin to a 20K grit hone. This stone is $125

    #3 - La Dressante “Flamed Veins” Salmon colored stone. Looks slick and works beautifully. Superb tactile and audible feedback and all around excellent, uncommon stone. Lapped and ready to use. $95

    #4 - La Grosse Blanche. The famed "white" coticule, wonderfully soft, incredible tactile feedback and brutally easy to use. This sucker is actually fun to use... put a little pressure on your blade and you'll have a milky slurry in no time. This one is an absolute joy - and I really should sell this one for more. Lapped and ready for use. $150 SOLD

    Note: All items include USPS first class shipping to the conus, with delivery confirmation and without insurance. Shipping can be upgraded upon request and insurance can be added - both of which at actual cost. Insurance is highly recommended as I will not be responsible for lost/damaged uninsured items. This stone is remarkably hard, and took me hours, upon hours (almost like ceramic) to lap on diamond plates, but it is lapped and ready to go.

  2. If I hadn't already purchased a coticule a few hours ago, #3 would be mine.
     
  3. What sizes are 2, 3, and 4?
     
  4. PM sent for #1
     
  5. #1 and #4 = sold pending payment.
     
  6. #2 = 1.75 X 6
    #3 = 1.75 X 5

    For me, 1.75 = the optimal width, and I order my stones direct to get this width. I'm fond of it, because if you have a blade that is ever so slightly bent, or twisted, the stone is wide enough to allow quick sharpening, but also not too wide and there is never enough blade on the stone at once to factor in the bend/twist - thus sharpening the blade with no fuss or serious edge reconstruction. Saves time and is easier to use.
     
  7. #1 = Sold.
     
  8. #4 = sold. :smile:
     
  9. These are a bit out of my range, but let me know if you ever want to sell the Chinese 12K :001_smile
     
  10. Bump.
     
  11. Wow, those beautiful pics make me want a natural stone hone!

  12. PM sent
