    I bet that was one hell of a ride.
  2. I’m only a few honings in since acquiring and lapping this one... Hideous ~5-8mm thick bout, but she brings plenty of keen to the party every attempt so far.

  3. Extremely pale stone. Untested. Fresh out of lap. 20190605_175015.jpg 20190605_175022.jpg 20190605_175047.jpg 20190605_175124.jpg 20190605_175147.jpg
  4. Picked this one. First pic when I started lapping, second is lapped and wet. It's pretty, that's all I can tell you about it.

    Very nice. Natural combo?
  8. Le petite Blanche. Sorry I think my phone auto corrected and I didn’t pay attention.
  9. It's glued so I think that pretty much disqualifies lpb

    Just finished lapping this stone. It’s about 7.5 by 1.5. It was in my drawer for a while so taking it out to put it to use.

    Got this stone from a member on sometime in 2011 I think. Stone was given to him by Bart apparently and was told it was a la verte. It’s extremely hard and doesn’t slurry much. I used to use it just with water to finish.

    I’m sure you all saw this one. The eBay pics made it look like it was falling apart, but the two open lines were much tighter than they looked. A little CA and lapping and it’s solid as a....rock and ready for action. B9B52F27-F7A9-4B64-8E4A-C8A6B1FDE6CC.jpeg

    Beautiful. I was surprised how much you had to pay for it. Figured the damage would scare people off, but I guess they want all that manganese. Glad you got it in the end.

    If it wasn’t cracked I suspect it would have went for 250-300. Manganese sells.
  14. Looks nice! Can you feel any of the lines while honing?

    No you can’t feel them at all. It feels like you’re honing on a piece of glass.
  16. I knew you would bid on that once you saw it...
  17. Ca glue is like coticule duct tape, it fixes everything...

    Haha. I can’t resist those hard pale stones with manganese lines. They are almost always exceptional stones.

    It really does. It needs to be the super thin CA so it soaks down deep into the cracks and fills them in. Once it’s dried and lapped you literally can’t see it or feel it under the blade.
  19. Yes, natural combo.
