Escher/Thuringian love. show of your rocks

Gentlemen, new arrival here, I am yet to test. Please share any info on this.
It's way softer than the Larkin Co thuri.

5k JIS? Yeah sure. I go to them after 8k Mesh (~4k JIS) all the time. I go to almost everything after 8k Mesh, actually.

If it's a really cheap 5k (like some of the $10-20 ones on eBay), maybe not the best idea, as they're often not comparable refinement to a better quality 5k.
 
A Escher found in the wild. A 7 x 1 1/2 inch dark blue stone with a nice label. The label is the older, German on the left, English on the right and the “E Pluribus Unum” eagle flying above the Escher Cup. The stone is one the hard side but smooth on the blade like a Escher should. Tagging along for the ride is a same size Thuri glued to a paddle. Score this one a few weeks ago. Found in the bathroom hanging on the wall at a estate sale

I have always wanted to try a yellow-green thuri. Just received this 6 inch thuri bout from @hatzicho .

It really feels great to use. Slurries easily. The top surface is a rectangle, and the rest is odd shaped. Works well in hand. I’m still figuring it out.

It's nice to see that he's still able to find pretty y/g material like that. Lucky man he is being able to forage for Thuringians.

The Trademark was also used under „Deutsche Schleifmittelwerke, Bösenberg, Trinks & Co.“ with the Shortcut BTC...here is another Version of the Logo without the Escher Cup.


After the Schleifmittel Aktiengesellschaft (SAG) was founded the stones were sold under the „Eagle“ Trademark within their catalogue.
