Is that on in the paddle a fine Turkey stone?
Yes a fine cretan . next to it is a piece of fine black hard graphite that is used dry and gives best edge coticule like very sharp and fine , without dilution of slurry and so.
there is a 3 pics of bulgarian graphite mud shiste very fine . It haz a thuringian feedback but with some coarser particles inside .
Very fast stone .

I whanted to post those pics , in a reason to proove that im not a crazy forum maniac and that i stand up for every word i whrote .
Just to assure you that im a real guy not a liar .

I was using some of the hard stones with a thin oil lately , and they arent properly degreased . I will use lather next time to clean them good from the oil ha ha ha ..

Well i still dont have a Jnat :bored: Maybe some day when i hit the jackpot on the lotary ....
they told me that the bigges size Cnat haz arived today . Let the game beggin ...
I just checked my eyes. I'm so jealous they just changed from brown to green!

Thanks for sharing, now I can point out to my wife that I DO NOT have too many hones.
If i learn something abbout the naturals is that the quality is important . You dont need many as i do as i get them cheap on the fleamarket. For coticule you need something good like a Dcado 111 Barbers pet or la Veignette and 1 coarser fast coticule and thats it . One more, good old thury from 6 to 8 inch for finishing and a 1/3 k good stone / Suehiro /bevelsetter . 4 stones progretrion for every blade if you arent a maniac . Or a sick guy like me
People are chasing young women , we are chasing old honing stones ha ha ha
Nice stones Rusen, thanks for posting.
If only chasing old honing stones could produce new baby honing stones like chasing young women! :w00t: :lol:
I've seen a few people not taking sensible precautions and ending up with a pile of baby nagura where they once had a beautiful stone.
